Jittery Joe’s Roaster, 425 Barber Street, Athens, GA.

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

The event will take place, as always, in the historic Boulevard neighborhood. It will feature a costume contest for 75 dogs held at Jittery Joe’s Roaster, 425 Barber Street in Athens. Because of the current COVID-19 positivity rate in Athens-Clarke County, we are unable to hold our traditional parade through the neighborhood, but there will still be lots of fun, and adorable dogs in costume!

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.

There will be live music starting at 3:00, courtesy of Historic Athens Porchfest.

We will also have food trucks and vendor tables at Jittery Joe’s from 2:30-4:00, and it will be a last chance to bid on Fill the Bowl Fundraiser art auction items. There will be live music all day in the neighborhood.
