Join us for the 2014 Bay Area Pignic

Bay Area Pignic 2014 Small Animal Rescue Fundraiser

Mark your calendars! This year's Bay Area Pignic will be held on Saturday, September 13 at Linda Vista Park in Cupertino.

For those who haven't had an opportunity to attend one of these events, pignics are a gathering where guinea pigs and their families come together to socialize. Picture a picnic lunch in the park while your guineas snack beside you on the grass. Multiply that scenario by a few dozen and you have a pignic! If you're as fond of these creatures as I am, it is an event not to be missed.

The costume and veggie eating contests will be returning this year, along with a raffle and bake sale. All proceeds go to support local guinea pig rescues.

Head over to the official Bay Area Pignic Facebook page and hit LIKE for event updates, prize previews, and more.


  1. I wish where I live had pignics! My guinea pigs would LOVE the veggie eating contest! Maybe not so much the costume part but they would love to chomp down on some veggies as fast as they can!

  2. Lucky you; in Singapore, we don't have pignics :(. I'm sure Cocoa and Cookie would enjoy the pignic... well, maybe not the costume part.....

  3. I wish Rufus and I could go! It sounds like a total blast! xo Jennifer

  4. It's a bit too far away for us to travel to, but I'll be there in spirit!

  5. So glad to hear that it's been helpful to you and Salem! Hope to see you both there :)

  6. I just recently moved to Ukiah, CA, and got my first guinea pig named Salem. I am hoping that we will be able to join you and have a ton of fun!
    P.S your blog has helped me soo much with learning about cavies and all the things they need!
