What Visitors Saw in Years Past at the Great Lakes Pet Expo

Sorry, insurance prohibits us from allowing your personal pet to join you at the Great Lakes Pet Expo.

Over 12,000 pet lovers joined in 2016 and because of the great response we are expanding! The 2017 GLPE will boast an additional 30,000 square feet and an extended the show time – 9AM to 6PM!  To honor our die hard shoppers, we are adding a VIP Shopping Hour (9AM to 10AM, 2000 tickets available) prior to general admission.  More details to come in the months ahead!!!

The Great Lakes Pet Expo has been labeled Milwaukee’s Premier Pet Lovers Event by local media and is Wisconsin’s only charitable event of this magnitude.

Proceeds from this event go back into the community to help animals in need.

Held annually, this event has something for everyone. Live entertainment features amazing animal acts including some that have been featured on national programs such as The Tonight Show, Oprah Winfrey, Jay Leno and more! Several hundred exhibits feature companion animals available for adoption as well as feature the latest and greatest pet related products and services. An educational stage headlines veterinarians and industry experts teaching small groups of attendees how to better care for their pets. Finally, the expo features Wisconsin’s Largest Educational Reptile Display where attendees can meet and interact with over 50 species of reptiles.

Below are just some of the types of performances and displays you can see at this year’s expo.  A downloadable version of the Entertainment Guide will be posted and available later in 2016.
