Hop to it! Join the Fluffy Fun at Southeast Bunfest. April 27th

Humane Society to host Bunfest 2024 at Flagler Center of Stuart

By Humane Society of the Treasure Coast April 10, 2024

The Humane Society of the Treasure Coast is inviting the public to come out for some fluffy fun at its annual Southeast Bunfest event. Slated for Saturday, April 27, 2024, the event will be held from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM at The Flagler Center of Stuart, 201 SW Flagler Avenue.

The cost to attend is $5 per person and kids under 10 years old are free. Tickets may be purchased in advance at or at the door on the day of the event.

Bunfest is the largest event entirely dedicated to critters in the Southeast United States and many people travel from outside of Florida to attend and participate. Special features of this one-day educational, family-fun event include glamour photos by Critter Pics, a kid zone, a Hop ‘n’ Flop Shop along with a variety of vendors, educational seminars, food trucks, face painting and raffles.

Bunfest also is an opportunity for guests to bring their own rabbit or guinea pig to the event. All critters must be in a pet stroller, carrier or transported in a proper harness at all times. Owners are responsible for the comfort, safety, and care of their animals. A humane society technician will check rabbits for fur lice, mites and ear mites before entering.

“Bunfest is such a special event, as there is something for everyone, including adoptable critters,” said Communications Manager Sarah Fisher. “Even if you don’t have a rabbit or guinea pig, there’s plenty to see and do.”

To participate as a vendor, contact Events Coordinator Alyssa Bean at 772-600-3215 or To sponsor Bunfest, contact Development Manager Ashton Standish at 772-600-3216 or

Bunfest is generously sponsored by Apex Pavers & Pools, Monterey Animal Clinic, TCPalm, Supreme Petfoods and Oxbow Animal Health.
