Numerous educational exhibits take place throughout the day. Many of the talks and demonstrations will highlight medical techniques used by UF veterinarians to treat animals. Pre-veterinary school advisory sessions will be at different times in the main auditorium.

There will be a food truck rally featuring local eateries, games and souvenirs. Children can also bring torn stuffed animals for repair at a teddy bear clinic.
