Hands on Exotics visits dozens of fairs, festivals, and trade show events each year, from small local events to extremely large ones, bringing the unique experience of meeting and interacting with exotic animals from around the world!

For full fair, festival, and trade show pricing, please email us at info@handsonexotics.com or call us at 416-354-3003 with your dates, time frame, location, and expected number of people.

  • Meet/greet or fair format instead of a formal presentation.
  • Adding an extra handler to facilitate more interactions with larger group sizes.
  • Handlers arrive 15 min early for set up.
    • If you believe that your venue will necessitate longer load-in time (downtown venues, large buildings, etc.), please discuss with us to add time to allow for load-in and load-out.
  • 10×10 ft space for our handler, supplies, and animal carriers with the participants sitting beyond that with enough room between to walk around and up close with the animals. Smaller spaces can be possible if limited.
  • A parking spot as close to where we are offloading as possible.
  • An adult to watch over animal carriers for the few minutes when we are offloading to make sure no one is peeking or poking into carriers.
  • A quiet and controlled environment for the animals. If at any point the noise level becomes too loud or the participants are unable to follow our safety rules, our handlers reserve the right to stop the presentation.
