A Toast To 100 Years: Cleveland Persian Society's Anniversary Cat Show

Kathy Pritchard's Cornish Rex will model Victorian fashion during the Cleveland Persian Society Show.

The ballroom of the Hotel Olmsted was once filled with the 'Ohs' and 'Ahs' of Cleveland's cat lovers. Cleveland Persian Society, CFA's second oldest club, put on it's very first show within the ballroom's elegant walls in 1918. Fifty of the most purr-fect Persians were on display, much to the delight of both exhibitors and spectators. In the following years, the show moved around visiting the Hotel Statler in 1924, but continued to delight all ages.

The Cleveland Persian Society hopes to re-ignite some of that passion, along with bringing some old fashioned charm, to their 100th anniversary celebration on January 20th and 21st at Barons Bus Arena, 5310 Hauserman Rd, Parma, OH. Not only will there be Persians, flowing with coat, but all manner of lovely purebred felines to strut their stuff. If beautiful cats weren't enough, there will also be a number of exciting things for all to enjoy, from a display of original show pieces provided by the CFA Museum, to face painting for children, a feline fashion show and a fabulous anniversary cake for all in attendance. The show will begin at 9 A.M. and go until 4 P.M. both days. Don’t miss out on a purr-fect party!
