This event is held at the Cabarrus Arena & Events Center
Repticon, a recognized leader in hosting reptile and exotic animal expos throughout the United States, hosts an outstanding mixture of vendors, breeders, and educators. This family-oriented, fun-filled event offers guests the opportunity to learn about animals not normally seen in local pet stores. Breeder-vendors are always willing to teach; and, throughout the event, there will be seminars on animal-related topics by experts in the field of herpetology.
Guests can also shop for a new family pet among the hundreds of reptiles, amphibians, invertebrates, spiders, and small exotic animals. Repticon is also the perfect place for them to get merchandise, cages, supplies, and both live and frozen feeders, as well as to get expert advice about caring for their new household member. Many of our vendors allow live interactions with the pets during visits to their booth.

All purchases are between exhibitors and guests: All animals and products offered for sale at Repticon shows are offered by independent individuals and businesses exhibiting at each show. No animals and no products (other than Repticon t-shirts and branded merchandise) are offered for sale by Repticon. Each purchaser is responsible for researching each animal that they choose to purchase at a show, ensuring that they know how to properly care for the animal, evaluating the animal or property prior to purchase, and properly caring for each animal once it is in their possession.
Guests making purchases at a show should identify who they are purchasing from and retain their contact information for future follow up. If a guest has concerns about an animal or product purchased at a show and does not remember who they purchased from, Repticon will make every reasonable effort to put the guest in direct contact with the exhibitor that sold the animal or product to the guest.
All resolutions must be reached directly between the exhibitor and guest. Repticon is not a guarantor for anything sold by the independent exhibitors at its shows, and will not be held liable for expenses that guests or exhibitors incur relating to animals or products purchased at the show or disputes regarding the purchases.
Some venues have restrictions so please check with the venue if you have any questions.
Each exhibitor is different so please ask before touching.
Can I bring my personal animals to Repticon?
Guests can bring up to two animals inside the event. We feel strongly that this interaction will provide guests with an additional opportunity to engage in discussion with exhibitors and will generate excitement among event attendees. Animals brought by guests to the event must be in good health and under their control at all times. Any guests who violate that policy will be asked to leave the show. (Even though Repticon does not prohibit you from bringing two animals to the show, state or local laws may prohibit this. Please check your local laws to ensure that your state or locality does not prohibit you from allowing your pets to be seen in public.) Also, some venues have restrictions so please check with the venue if you have any questions.
Guests may not bring animals into the event for the purpose of selling them at the event, as only show vendors with appropriate permits may sell animals. Any guests who violate that policy will be asked to leave the show.
Even though we have “hot” shows, venomous animals are never allowed to be brought in to our shows. We have very strict protocols that we follow and want to guarantee the safety of all our guests and exhibitors.
