Howl-O-Ween Pooch Parade & Pet Expo

  • Sunday, October 23, 2022 from 1-5pm

The UT Gardens, Knoxville is pleased to present our ninth annual Howl-O-Ween Pooch Parade & Pet Expo, a fun Halloween-themed event sponsored by the UT Gardens, Knoxville and the UT College of Veterinary Medicine. Catering to dogs and dog lovers, this event will promote the invaluable resource of the UT Gardens and the College of Veterinary Medicine as well as many other dog-related nonprofits and businesses in the Knoxville area.

This fun event with a spooky twist will include a judged costume parade, an expo of educational booths, pet businesses and rescue groups, food trucks and more. We will be hosting a pet food drive to benefit Companion Animal Initiative of Tennessee (CAIT), which works to improve the lives of companion animals and reduce the homeless pet population in Tennessee by promoting humane education and spay/neuter initiatives. Please consider donating to support them in their mission.

This event will be held rain or shine. We are excited to be able to hold this in-person and are looking forward to admiring your pet costuming creativity!
