Nipfest is a fictional festival run by and for cats that is documented yearly on X, formerly Twitter, with photoshops of cats attending the festival. The event was founded in 2019 by X user @BagginsSuperCat and became increasingly popular on X over the following years, seeing a significant spike in popularity in August 2023, leading "#nipfest2023" to trend on August 25th. The festival's name is a portmanteau of "catnip" and "festival."


Nipfest, a fictional festival for cats, was founded on X in 2019 by @BagginsSuperCat, although the exact origins of its founding are unclear. One of the earliest posts about Nipfest was posted to X[1] by @BagginsSuperCat, an account that roleplays as a cat on April 9th, 2019, where Baggins suggested she might put a photoshop of herself in a hat on the poster for Nipfest. On April 12th, X[2] user @TigrissBlue explained Nipfest to another user, writing, "Baggins is holding a kitty festival at her house/garden this Summer and it's been named #Nipfest. She's still warming her human parents up to the idea thoughโ€ฆ๐Ÿ˜ธ."


Nipfest became increasingly popular on X throughout the 2020s, inspiring users to share photoshopped images of cats at the festival under the Nipfest hashtag, consisting of "#Nipfest" followed by the year. For example, in 2021, numerous X[3][4] users shared photos of cats under the hashtag #Nipfest2021 (examples shown below).
