Third Annual Internet Cat Video Festival

August 14 was the Third Annual Internet Cat Video Festival hosted by the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis.

The frist year was a phenomenon because nobody, including the Walker, knew how big it would become. That year saw 10,000+ attendees all seated on a hill to watch a sampling of cat videos from thousands that were curated. The festival made national news.

The next year was held at the Minnesota State Fair. Grumpy cat even made an appearance.

This year the festival returned to the Walker and as in the first year about 10,000 people attended donning cat regalia.

Here are a few images I took.

  1. Cat people are some of the best people I know (right after dog people)!
    This looks fun. I talked about crashing with my German pinscher pup. He’s a bit big to dress up as a cat though.
