Repticon is coming back to Chattanooga with a mixture of vendors, breeders, and educators. This family-oriented, fun-filled event offers guests the opportunity to learn about animals not normally seen in local pet stores. Breeder-vendors are always willing to teach; and, throughout the event, there will be seminars on animal-related topics by experts in the field of herpetology.
Guests can also shop for a new family pet among the hundreds of reptiles, amphibians, invertebrates, spiders, and small exotic animals. Repticon Chattanooga has merchandise, cages, supplies, and both live and frozen feeders, and advice about caring for a new household member. Many of the vendors allow live interactions with the pets during visits to their booth.
Free-entry raffles are held frequently during both days of the event, offering guests the opportunity to win prizes.
This event, held at the Camp Jordan Arena in East Ridge, offers a unique family outing suitable for all ages and for a diverse range of enthusiasts.
The doors open to the general public at 10 a.m. on Saturday, April 27, closing at 5 p.m. On Sunday, April 28, the show hours are 10 a.m.-4 p.m. At the door tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for children 5-12, and children under 5 are admitted free.
