2022 Waggin' Trail Festival for the Animals

About Waggin' Trail Festival for the Animals


Waggin' Trail Festival for the Animals is the largest animal festival in the area, drawing more than 1,500 humans, canines and other pets annually for a celebration and fundraiser to help animals in Louisville and across Kentucky. The 28th Annual Waggin' Trail Festival for the Animals will be held at Louisville Slugger Field on Sunday, May 22, 2022 from 2:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. This year's festival will include hundreds of local and national vendors, fun activities for the whole family - both two and four legged - and, of course, the company of fellow animal lovers and champions and their pets who support the animals in our community. 

​The 2022 Waggin' Trail Fundraising Challenge

Thanks to the overwhelming generosity of compassionate people like you and our community, Waggin' Trail has batted over a thousand to support animals in need. Over the past 28 years, Waggin' Trail Festival for the Animals has raised more than $1 million to support the lifesaving programs of the Kentucky Humane Society

Please join us this year as we continue this important tradition to support dogs, cats and horses in need in Louisville and across Kentuckiana by participating in the Festival's Waggin' Trail Fundraising Challenge! We want to make this the best Waggin' Trail Festival for the Animals ever to support even more homeless and needy dogs, cats and horses. We hope you'll set a personal or team fundraising goal to help the Kentucky Humane Society raise $120,000 this year for its lifesaving programs. Read our Fundraising Toolkit to help you reach your personal and team fundraising goals.
