The dogtown family pet parade

The Half-way to St. Patrick’s Day Dogtown Family Pet Parade kicks off the six-month countdown to the big day in March!

This event recreates a family-centered version of our neighborhood’s famous parade down Tamm.

Families and pets are encouraged to wear creative costumes or dress up in green to strut down the streets of Dogtown and showcase our neighborhood pride!


In addition to the parade itself, we are excited to offer a variety of family friendly activities. We will have a face painter, a bubble bus, stilt walkers, and more. These features can be found before and after the parade at the staging area behind The Pat Connolly Tavern.


The parade will stage in the empty yard behind The Pat Connolly Tavern. It will proceed south on Tamm, turn left and head east on Berthold, turn right and head south on Graham, turn right again and head west on Clayton, and then turn north on Tamm and head back to The Pat Connolly Tavern. See below map.


All streets along the parade route below will be closed from 10:30AM to 12:00PM. Clayton and Wise between Tamm and Art Hill will also be closed from 8AM to 5PM. No Parking orders will be in effect on Clayton and Wise between Tamm and Art Hill from 8AM to 5PM as well. There will also be a no parking order on both sides of Tamm 100' south of Oakland for parade staging.
