2:30: Registration Check-In
3:00: Costume Contest
4:00: End

Jittery Joe’s Roaster, 425 Barber St, Athens, GA

We’re getting the pups back together and hope you’ll join us! This year’s theme is The Dogs Go Marching On!

And this year, we’re combining with Historic Athens Porchfest to double the fun!

OUR FILL THE BOWL FUNDRAISER IS LIVE! Check out our auction site and bid on GREAT unique art items to benefit the neediest animals in the Athens area and the people who love them!

IMPORTANT UPDATE: We wanted to update you all on a few changes, necessitated by the current COVID-19 positivity rate in Athens-Clarke County. Because of the current rate, we will not be able to hold the parade. Instead, we will be hosting the event in the Jittery Joe’s Roaster parking lot.

All parade registrations will be converted to costume contest entries (with paid costume contest entries refunded in cash on the event date), with the dogs paraded before the judges and audience. Because of these changes, registration is moved up to 2:30, with the costume contest occurring 3-3:30, and the event ending at 4:00.

We will be restricting the number of people allowed in the event at any one time to allow for physical distancing as appropriate. All entrants age 12 or older to the event will need to provide proof of vaccination (vaccination card or a photo) or a negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 of the start of the event. We request that masks be worn by younger children and when entrants are in close proximity to individuals not from their households and will have masks available on site.

Registrants as of 9/23 who prefer not to attend at this point should email barkonboulevard@gmail.com to let us know and, if you prefer not to donate your entry fee, request a refund.

Many thanks for your support of Athenspets and our community!
