The UT Gardens Knoxville is pleased to present our sixth annual Howl-O-Ween Pooch Parade and Pet Expo, a fun Halloween-themed event sponsored by the UT Gardens Knoxville and the 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 with prizes, an expo of educational booths, pet businesses, and rescue groups, food trucks and more. We will be hosting a pet food drive to benefit UT's CAIT (Companion Animal Initiative in Tennessee). Please consider donating money or bringing items to support them in their mission (such as small bags of Purina, cans of food, toys, beds, treats, or harnesses/collars in any sizes for felines or canines; or puppy pads, sheets, and large towels).

This event will be held rain or shine.
