Marking the fifth show since the inaugural Sydney launch in 2022, Australia’s First National Pet Show will arrive in Adelaide on Saturday 18 and Sunday 19 May at the Adelaide Showgrounds.  

Announcing a line-up of over 120 experts and exhibitors, the event will follow the successful multi-zone format that has received an overwhelmingly positive response from attendees nationwide. Bringing together the best of the pet industry, it is the perfect event for proud pet parents as well as those looking for a new pet that may not be sure where to start. 

“Following the success of our shows across Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane we’re excited to be adding a new event to our roster that will allow us to help Adelaide residents immerse themselves in all things pets,” managing director Cameron Just said. 

“With a rate of dog ownership that is higher than the national average, it was clear to us that Adelaide was the perfect addition to our show line-up. 

“There is no other pet event like this in Adelaide so we’re excited to see the response from the community. We’re committed to championing positive pet parenting for both traditional and non-traditional pets and are grateful for the support we’ve had to date which has made expanding our show possible,” 

The new show will feature a range of experts including author, pet expert and director of Hills Wildlife Sanctuary, Ben Dessen; Dr Katrina Warren and Kelly Gill along with the Wonderdogs and Debra Millikan from the Pet Professional Guild of Australia. 

There will also be a large range of exhibitors including Refuresh, Edenhills, RSPCA South Australia, Canine Connect, DOG by Dr Lisa, The Pet Butcher and more, as well as entertainment and activities from face painting and a kids agility course to scent work demonstrations and meet and greets with the famous Bluey and Bingo. 

Tickets are currently available online from with part proceeds from every sale donated to the RSPCA South Australia.
