The UT Gardens Knoxville is pleased to present our third 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. The event will be held rain or shine.

Pre-registration for parade participants is requested. That link will be available soon and will be posted here. The fee for those who pre-register will be $10 per costume entry (a costume entry may include multiple dogs, so long as they will be judged together). Registration will be available on the day of the event; the fee for day-of registration will be $15 per costume entry. Each costume entry must be accompanied by at least one adult during the parade.
