Meet Pip the Beach Cat in Purrrrrson!

How to Meet Pip the Beach Cat in Purrrrrson…

In the wake of the COVID-19 Outbreak all of our book-signing events have been cancelled. Meet and Greets at the Ocean Gallery have also been postponed until further notice. Please join us every weekday virtually on our Facebook Show at 10am instead- or visit our online store to help us survive this crisis and be back to meet and greets eventually. 

As Pip is invited to events, some of his Pip-Ups will change, so please check back for any changes; as always we only list start times since we always leave when Pip is ready to, be it 15 minutes into a Pip-Up or 4 hours.

2020 Storytimes, Meet and Greets, and Events

Everyday in June, July, and August!

Come Meet Pip at the World Famous Ocean Gallery on 2nd Street and the Boardwalk!

5:30pm-6:30pm Pip’s Storytime 

 Every night join us upstairs for Pip’s Storytime! This is a new event we are adding on this year because we really want to connect with our young readers even more. We will be reading both of his books and talking about all the awesome things we love to do in Ocean City- plus answering any questions you might have!

6:30pm-till Pip’s Meet and Greet and Pip-Up Shop Opens

We’ll come downstairs from story time to open up our Pip-Up shop. Join us on the boardwalk in front of Ocean Gallery where you can shop Pip’s book series, get a high-five, check out all our other awesome cat toys and Ocean City merchandise, or even give little Pip a head scratch. And as always we’ll have free stickers for anyone that stops by!
