Portland's zaniest pug parade and festival
Pug Crawl is Postponed
Following guidelines from public health officials regarding containment of COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to postpone Pug Crawl, scheduled for May 17.
While we may not be able to celebrate together now, we look forward to reuniting for Pug Crawl once it is safe to do so later this year – we will announce the new date here once available!

2019 Event Activities
The Parade of Pugs is the highlight of Pug Crawl and begins at 2pm. To register your pug or pug-mix for the parade, visit the Oregon Humane Society booth the day of the event to sign up. Participation in the parade is free once you are registered for the event.
Judging the Parade of Pugs is no easy task. The panel of judges deliberates long and hard over all the entrants. Factors considered during the costume judging include: interpretation of the theme; creativity; costume stability (few or no stops for adjustments along the route); and the time and effort that went into building the costume.
Other activities at the event include:
- Pet-related merchandise for pets and people
- Vendor booths
- Photo booth
- Food and drink available for purchase
- Delicious dog treats
- Dog water cooling station
