Petting Zoo Returns to MVT: Saturday, September 28

Wednesday September 18, 2019

Join the MVT CID  Saturday, September 28 from 10 AM – Noon for the always popular petting zoo alongside the FRESHFARM MVT Market. Enjoy getting to know the adorable bunnies, llamas, goats, donkeys and sheep from Leesburg Animal Park. The event is free and open to the public. DC Public Library will also be joining us in Milian Park for a Library Takeout! They will have books to checkout, crafts for kids and other fun activities! Future event updates such as postponement due to inclement weather will be provided as soon as possible via the MVT CID’s social media channels. Follow the MVT CID on FacebookTwitter and Instagram for updates. And, check out these photos from last year’s petting zoo!

And, don’t forget to shop local this weekend at the FRESHFARM MVT Market! The market is open every Saturday from 9am-1pm on 5th & Eye Streets NW through November 23! Here are this weekend’s market vendors:


Note: As a pet-friendly community, the MVT CID is committed to the responsible treatment of animals and only partners with organizations whose practices align with our core values. Leesburg Animal Farm has a proven track record of – and commitment to – ethical principles related to animal welfare, protection and conservation. For many years we have partnered successfully with the organization to host this very popular community event. And each year we first obtain (by a licensed veterinarian) an inspection of all animals that will appear in the petting zoo, and then an operating permit from DC’s Department of Health. It is our hope that this communication provides our stakeholders and patrons with any added comfort needed to happily enjoy this event.
