Young-Williams Animal Center invites you to join us at our 14th Annual Mardi Growl presented by Merchants of Beer on June 26th on the performance lawn at World’s Fair Park. While we continue to monitor the pandemic guidelines, we’re excited to celebrate one of our favorite traditions with you this summer.
This year, we’re mixing things up! Instead of our regular pet parade, we’re hosting the first ever pet show to raise awareness for the life-saving efforts of Young-Williams Animal Center and support for Knoxville’s pet-friendly communities!
Our pet show will have all the fun of our parade while keeping participants and festival goers safe. Registration is $15 per pet and we’ll have seven fun categories to compete in. During the festival, guests can visit with more than 80 vendors, enjoy a bite from local food trucks, grab a drink, enjoy live music and more.
Our vision is to find a home for every pet, and whether you’re a sponsor, vendor, or participant of Mardi Growl, you will help continue much-needed services for nearly 10,000 animals.
Voted the 2017 “Best Non-Profit Fundraiser” by the readers of Knox News, Mardi Growl is Young-Williams Animal Center’s largest fundraiser of the year.
