Postponed Woofstock Festival in Voorhees to take place Nov 7

The 19th annual Woofstock Festival returns to Voorhees’ John Connelly Park on Saturday, Nov. 7. The pet fundraiser, put on by the Voorhees Animal Orphanage, was rescheduled after Hurricane Joaquin prompted Gov. Christie to declare a state of emergency last month.

This year’s special guests will be Master Chef Joseph Poon and renown animal communicator, Elizabeth “Dr. Liz” Severino.

They’ll join more than 100 vendors, food trucks and live musicians, including the Joseph A Ferko String Band.

New this year will be demonstrations by Voorhees Police Department’s K-9 unit.

Returning are the VAO alumni parade of previously adopted pets and the chance to have your pet microchipped (cost $25).

Besides plenty of furry friends to pet, there will be a clown, balloon artists plus face and pumpkin painting for kids.

Fur children are also welcome, but organizers request no retractable leashes.

Admission cost just $1. Kids under age 12 and seniors enter for free.

Saturday, Nov. 7, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. – 605 Centennial Blvd., Voorhees, NJ.
