2019 Costume Contest

N.E.M.O.’s Annual

Cat-and-Owner Costume Contest

It is time again for our annual Costume Contest at the New England Meow Outfit (N.E.M.O. Inc.) show the weekend of August 24-25 in Sturbridge, MA.

Owners get to join in the fun – in a way that never fails to garner lots of applause and a-mews-ment! 

The costume event  happens Sunday, August 25, at approximately 12:30 and will only last about half an hour, so make sure you arrive on time so as not to miss a thing!

Past contests have been more about the fun of the event than the prizes. This year, we are ramping up the value of the prizes in order to encourage more entries.

  • The first prize winner will receive a certificate good for one free entry at our 2020 show.
  • The second prize winner will receive a certificate good for $25 off an entry to the 2020 show.

Two judges will review the contestants’ presentations and select the winners. One judge will be long-distance N.E.M.O. member Koshka (Coco) Helqvist, who will preside via Skype from her home in Sweden. The other is  CFA Judge John Adelhoch, who is an exhibitor at this years show.

Watch the club website and Facebook page for more info. And start thinking of ideas for your costume now!

Sorry, the contest is open to exhibitors only,  but spectators are welcome and highly encouraged!
