Calling all pet owners, animal welfare advocates, and people searching for a fun family-friendly time! Young-Williams Animal Center invites you to the 17th annual Mardi Growl – Knoxville’s favorite pet parade and party – on March 2, 2024. Our famous pet parade will kick off in the Old City at 11 a.m. and travel on foot to World’s Fair Park. Register your pet for the parade, or join the thousands of spectators along the route.
After the parade, let the good times roll at our pet festival with nearly 100 pet-loving vendors, food trucks, live music, games, and more. Save the date and bring the whole family down for a dog-gone good time. Mardi Growl is one of our favorite traditions and benefits the more than 11,000 pets that need Young-Williams Animal Center’s care each year. Show off your creativity and your pet’s personality by competing in costume contests, shop from local vendors, and celebrate our shared love for pets.
Mardi Growl wouldn’t be paws-sible without generous sponsors and vendors. Show your support for animals and promote your business by sponsoring Knoxville’s largest pet party! Contact [email protected] for more information.
