Thank You To Our 2022

Special Sponsors

To maintain a level playing field for our paying vendors, if you wish to sell merchandise for the benefit of your Organization, you must pay a Vendor's Fee. Registered charities can attend Woofa~Roo free of charge and may conduct fund raising events at your booth including offering items for a donation. We can only accept a limited number of applicants. Only one booth representing your charity is allowed.

All new charities / rescues must to be registered with the Province of Ontario as a charity. Please enter your charity registration number in our application below. Your presence at the festival is mandatory to benefit from fundraising efforts.

Charities or Rescues may benefit from the Silent Auction and we encourage you to take advantage of this fantastic fund raising opportunity by contributing items to this very popular event. You will receive 100% of the proceeds from items you contribute. Profits from items that were donated without a named beneficiary will be divided among the rescues and charities who actively participate in the Silent Auction. The distribution of profits will be pro rated according to your level of participation.

​Charities or rescues that are not a registered charity may attend Woofa~Roo as a vendor.

Donations or contests at your booth are

open to all participants.
