Make your pet famous: Billy + Margo Pet Festival

16 March 2018


The ‘Archipaws’ Pet Portrait competition launches today with great prizes and the opportunity to have your superstar pet portrait become a 2-meter tall flag in the Chatswood CBD.

Artists, owners and pet lovers can submit their drawings, paintings or photographs before April 5. Thirty finalists will have their images featured on flags in the Chatswood CBD and be in the running for prizes from pet food company Billy + Margo.

The Pet Portrait competition promotes the Billy + Margot Pet Festival that will come alive with activities for pets and their human companions on May 20 at Artarmon Reserve. The Festival invites pet owners, wannabe owners and anyone who loves animals to celebrate all creatures great and small. From doggy fashion parades to scent scrambling games, there’s plenty to do with your furry (or not so furry!) friend.

Pets of all shapes and sizes are welcome – bring your cat, pig or python! Join us to celebrate the value of companion animals and learn more about responsible pet care.

  • Talks by leading veterinarians
  • Advice on the best pet care & nutrition
  • How to solve behavioural problems
  • Doggy fashion parade
  • Accessories + food stalls
