About Us

CatCon is the biggest cat-centric, pop culture event in the world dedicated to all things feline, with a community of cat lovers that spans the globe. Part expo, part symposium, CatCon engages, educates and entertains thousands of fans, featuring the latest in groundbreaking products and ideas for cats and their people. Since its inception in 2015, the annual two-day immersive experience has welcomed 78,000 attendees, helped almost 700 cats find their forever homes, and donated $250,000 to cat organizations. The event has been featured in over 1,000 outlets around the world, including The New York Times, BuzzFeed, Reuters, Vanity Fair, and Glamour.

CatCon took place Saturday, June 29th – Sunday, June 30th, 2019 at the Pasadena Convention Center, in Pasadena. Info about future events coming soon!

Our Mission

To spread joy and goodness to cats and the people who love them.

Our Core Values

Inform, Educate and Entertain:

Through engaging seminars and activations, we strive to educate and inform people in entertaining and outside the box ways.

Shelters Far and Wide:

We support animal shelters, both local and nationwide, in all of their efforts from adoption to feline healthcare to spay/neuter.

Adopt Don’t Shop:

We vigorously promote “adopt, don’t shop.” Each year, millions of adoptable dogs and cats are euthanized in the United States. When you adopt instead of buying, you’re saving lives.

Debunking the Cat Lady Myth:

We are changing the negative perception of the “crazy cat lady” and proving that it is possible to be hip, stylish, and have a cat, simultaneously.

Over the past five years, Ticket Out, Inc. (parent company of CatCon and Cat Art Show) has donated over $200,000 to FixNation, Lil BUB’s Big Fund, Kitten Rescue, Milo’s Sanctuary, Odd Cat Sanctuary, RedRover, TinyKittens, and the Ian Somerhalder Foundation, and has helped almost 700 cats find their forever homes with onsite groups Best Friends, spcaLA, and Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA.

CatCon 2019 took place in June in Pasadena, California. Sign up here to be the first to know about future events!
