Stay Strong, Columbus.
Dear PET LOVERS,
We hope you are all faring well in these unprecedented times. In light of the time schedule for the roll-out of the COVID-19 vaccine, we have changed our dates for the
ALL AMERICAN COLUMBUS PET EXPO to MARCH 11-12-13 2022. The guidelines and restrictions in place are too difficult to work around. The State of Ohio has informed us that we cannot have more than 300 people in the building at one time, including our exhibitors and staff. Since we were planning on promoting even more than we usual for our come back, we projected over 20,000 in attendance for the 3 days. With 200 booths, bleachers for our arena, and all the other things that fill our 154,000 square ft event, we have more than 300 people in the building before the show opens. We would not be able to allow people in the show to enjoy all the fun! So, we are not able to hold the event with these restrictions in place.
We promise to make our come-back event our biggest and safest show ever so we can all celebrate together! Please check our website for updates and take note that all the events including the MEGA PET ADOPTION and the ALL ABOUT CATS EXPO will be a part of our 2022 show. All the entertainment and events are coming back and are on the schedule, see you NEXT MARCH!
All of our staff wish your family and PETS a safe 2021!

Due to the Governor's Order on mass gatherings, the ALL AMERICAN COLUMBUS PET EXPO was officially canceled. If you bought a discount ticket online, we are working on that right now and should have them handled within 10 days. If you won a contest we will reach out to you individually from firstname.lastname@example.org.We understand any frustration with this cancellation, as we were on track to host our best expo in our 25-year history, to provide an amazing experience for our attendees. Unfortunately, this is a worldwide issue and we are all in it together. The health of or participants and attendees come first. Thanks to our sponsors, for all your past and present support. This has been devastating for all involved with the ALL AMERICAN COLUMBUS PET EXPO, but we will prevail. Since we did not get to celebrate our 25th Anniversary we are going to celebrate it next year!
MARK YOUR CALENDARS FOR THE NEW OFFICIAL 25th ANNIVERSARY!
March 11-12-13 2022.
On Friday, March 13th, Steve Cantin was on Good Day Market Place and thanked everyone for supporting the show for the past 25 years. Plus, he asked the public to visit our website and check out the Mega Pet Adoption rescues. Please use the links below to see the adoptable pets and if you have the available means, please consider donating to these incredible rescues. For 25 years, groups have been very successful at the show raising funds and awareness for their organizations. Plus, if you can, make a purchase from one of our great vendors who have missed out on 3 amazing days of sales and interaction with pet loving customers. It will be very helpful as they try to overcome the tremendous losses incurred from the event being canceled by the Governor.
