Do you have rat art you'd like to share? We will have a small rat art show for guests! Bring your art, all ages and levels of experience welcome! There's no fee! As long as it's something we can hang, we're happy to show it off for you!

Check out the Rescues and Vendors that will be at the show!

Pet rats are not allowed on the premesis unless registered. Deadlines for registering your rats for the show will be announced shortly. Please note all rats must begin quarantine on April 27th, which means no new rats enter your home nor do your rats leave your home and return. This is done to prevent the spread of viruses between rats at the show as there are currently no commercially available vaccines to protect your rats from sometimes deadly illnesses like SDA or Sendai virus. Please help us keep the shows safe so that we can keep putting them on in the future.

Ratapalooza is presented by RatsPacNW Rat Fanciers Club. We are a 501(c)4 non-profit organization dedicated to educating the public and securing the wellbeing of rats!
