Connecticut Pet Expo

Meet The Breeds Event at the Pet Expo CANCELLED

The Connecticut Pet Expo has been acquired by Family Pet Shows from Jenks Productions - new dates, new venue, new format. The event traditionally held in October at the Hartford Convention Center is no longer being held, and at this time we are not affiliated with the new event which will be held on Saturday, November 11 & 12,  2017 at the XL Center in Hartford, CT. The format of the new event allows the public to attend with their pets.  For this inaugural year of the new event, Family Pet Shows has decided not to include a full Meet the Breeds. There will be a 45-minute Parade of Purebreds for attendees who attend with purebred dogs.
