KittyCon Tampa Bay 2019
December 1, 2019 @ 6:00 am - 1:00 pm
One event on December 1, 2019 at 6:00 am
It’s Official- KIttyCon Tampa Bay is back for another feline fun filled fan convention. 2019 has been a year of change- we changed the number of days, the dates, and the hotel venue. But we didn’t change our desire to make KittyCon Tampa Bay the best cat convention in the Southeast! We are now at the DoubleTree by Hilton Tampa Airport Westshore on Cypress St., Tampa. The venue is much larger than last year and now that we are two days, we are truly a national destination convention. This year, KittyCon follows Thanksgiving and our cat-tastic vendors will be sure to please any cat lover looking for that special Holiday gift.
