When Alena Matthews was growing up in Alberton, attending Westisle Composite High School, she had no idea she’d be returning there one day to encourage another generation of students to pursue their dreams.

When it comes to pet-centered events in the GTA, you’d be hard pressed to find a dog lover who has not heard of Woofstock. Touted as North America’s largest outdoor dog festival, Woofstock attracts over 300,000 visitors to the historic St. Lawrence Market neighborhood every summer and has been a favourite among dog lovers since its inception in 2003.
With its popularity secure in the hearts of pet parents, it’s no wonder that the creators of this poochtastic festival decided to branch out and create a corresponding event slated to take place just in time for the Holiday Season. And Winter Woofstock was born.
Much like its summer counterpart, Winter Woofstock is a veritable who’s who of the canine world and attracts over 25,000 pet lovers each year. Wander the aisles of this puptacular festival and you’re sure to find something to tickle your fancy. From holistic food to tasty treats; creative toys to doggy fashion, Winter Woofstock has everything the discerning pet lover wants.
Unlike the original Woofstock, which takes place outdoors on the streets of downtown Toronto, Winter Woofstock moves the celebration indoors at the Direct Energy Centre on the CNE grounds. Once again, dogs are encouraged to accompany their humans and partake in the fun and festivities. Pet parents can speak with experts in the animal health field, take in a doggy fashion show and enjoy an exciting afternoon out with their favourite four-legged friend.
This year will mark the second time that Avivagen will participate in Winter Woofstock and we’re looking forward to once again connecting with pet people and their pups. Dog lovers can stop by our booth, fill out a ballot to win some great prizes and even pick up a sample bottle of our unique canine supplement, Oximunol Chewable Tablets, which helps support and optimize immune function, mobility and enhance skin/coat.
Reasons why we love Woofstock:
This year Winter Woofstock takes place on November 17th & 18th, 2012 at the Direct Energy Centre (CNE grounds). We hope to see you there!
