Mutt Strutt 5K & Dog Day Festival


Saturday - September 16th


The 2016 Mutt Strutt 5K Run/Walk and Dog Day Festival was a great success!!

Despite the rain, more than 660 people and their pooches came out in support of for our Music City Mutt Strutt 5K Run/Walk on September 17th. Teams did an amazing job fundriasing support for Nashville Humane - helping us pass our $15,000 Mutt Strutt goal!  A huge thanks to everyone who participated and volunteered!!  

Immediately following the Mutt Strutt the gates were flung open for Dog Day Festival 2017 - it was a little soggy but that  didn't stop our loyal supporters from visiting vendors, participating in kids zone and doggie fun zone activities, demonstrations and dog contests galore. Dog Day is a rain or shine event. 


Vendor and Sponsor Booths were active despite the rain!

Activities and contests were held throughout the day - like the below Movers for Mutt Poster Contest.
