This calendar is assembled from what we believe are reliable sources. However, some of this information is suspect, especially for events lacking a formal sponsor. Our research has discovered that events sometimes move around the calendar from year-to-year. Nevertheless, for our planning purposes, this is the “official” KSCO Pet Radio Calendar of Pet Events.
