We're officially one month away from an amazing event that brings exotic animals, excitement, and educational opportunities to the South Plains. Best of all, this engaging event is fun for any age.

For approximately 25 years, Lubbock's Science Spectrum has been putting on CritterFest and this year will not disappoint.
CritterFest also brings vendors, face painting, fair-style food and live dog agility shows. Moreover, you will be able to explore Texas Alive: the Brazos River Journey! This 6,000-square foot aquarium exhibit has both fresh and saltwater fish as well as other animals native to the Lone Star State.

Two exciting shows will be featured at this year’s CritterFest. Puppy Pals and Crocodile Encounters will headline the always popular animal entertainment. Puppy Pals is a family-friendly trained rescue dog act that will astound audiences with these animals’ intelligence and dedication to their human caretakers. Puppy Pals was made famous after being featured during Season 15 of NBC’s hit show, America’s Got Talent in 2020.

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.
