Rattle the Stars invites you to participate in The Animarvels Expo, an event to celebrate the benefits of animals for mental health and suicide prevention. In addition to food and music, planned events include animal contests, an animal parade, and play areas for cats and dogs. Exhibitors are invited to provide information about services for pet owners, service animals and emotional support animals, mental health and suicide prevention resources, and community resources. Vendors are invited to provide items and services that would be of interest to families and children, pet owners, animal lovers, and people with experience with mental illness or suicide.
Please complete the following application to be considered as a vendor or exhibitor at the event. A completed application does not guarantee acceptance into the event. Notification of acceptance will be sent to applicants by email. Please review all rules and regulations before completing the application.
