Lubbock’s Largest Annual Animal Event is Back… CRITTERFEST ‘17

It’s a Zoo in Here!

Lubbock’s most popular annual animal event is back again this June. No where else in town can you see bears, elephants, alligators, crocodiles, camels, a kangaroo, giant tortoises, big snakes, and tons of other cool animals as the Science Spectrum literally turns into a Zoo for four days. Awesome and amazing animal acts, as well as the extremely popular petting zoo, pony and camel rides, along with many of other animals on display continue to make this event a hit for the whole family!

Two exciting shows will be featured at this year’s CritterFest. Rosaire’s Bears and Crocodile Encounters will headline the always popular animal entertainment. Rosaire’s Bears is an all new act never seen in Lubbock before featuring brown bears. This show will not only astound you with these animal’s intelligence, but teaches important lessons about conserving wildlife and wild habitats. Crocodile Encounters is an educational reptile show that will introduce you to live American alligators and Nile crocodiles in order to educate the public about conserving these often misunderstood animals.
