Lubbock’s Largest Annual Animal Event is BACK! CritterFest ‘24

Lubbock’s most popular annual animal event is back again this June. No where else in town can you see elephants, alligators, crocodiles, camels, sheep, goats, pigs, rabbits, big snakes and tortoises, as well as 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, live agility dog and police K-9 demonstrations continue to make this event a hit for the whole family!

Two exciting shows will be featured at this year’s CritterFest. Pork Chop Revue and Crocodile Encounters will headline the always popular animal entertainment. Pork Chop Revue is an awesome display of some of the smartest swine in the country. You might have even seen these pig performers on the 2020 America’s Got Talent stage! These bodacious barnyard buddies present a show featuring amazing stunts and laughable antics. You will laugh as you watch these bundles of bacon jump hurdles, waltz and even sing! Crocodile Encounters is an educational reptile show that will introduce you to American alligators, Nile crocodiles and a variety of other awesome reptiles in order to educate the public about conserving these often misunderstood animals. Both shows are always a huge hit with audiences of all ages!
