On Saturday, September 23, 2017, the inaugural Critter Carnival (formerly Furry Friends Festival) will be held at Southern Community Park in Chapel Hill to raise awareness and funds for numerous local animal rescue and rehabilitation charities. From Noon to 7:30pm a wide variety of first-rate rock, bluegrass and jazz bands will perform alongside amazing aerial silk artists, hula hoopers, sideshow freaks and more. Admission is FREE! We’ll have treats from Maple View Mobile ice cream and Fahsyrah’s Lemonade, arts and crafts vendors including henna and a digital photo booth, and a silent auction for a wide variety of great items. The beneficiaries of this year’s festival are numerous animal-related charities in Chatham, Durham, Orange and Wake counties dedicated to rescuing and rehabilitating dogs, cats, wildlife, farm animals and exotic animals. They include All Breed Animal Rescue of the Carolinas (ABARC), Chatham Animal Rescue & Education (CARE), Hope Animal Rescue, Piedmont Wildlife Center, Robinshood Wildlife Rescue, and Wildlife Welfare, with many more to be announced.
