Event description
We invite pets and people of all ages to come join us for our annual St. Francis day fair featuring the Great Animal Costume Parade!

About this Event

Join us for a full afternoon of fun and festivities to celebrate Saint Francis, the patron saint of animals and the environment, on the lush grounds of the world's largest Gothic cathedral!

All people and pets are encouraged to dress as their favorite animal in honor of Saint Francis. The day will feature activities for kids of all ages, appearances by the Mettawee River Dance Theatre, food trucks, pet adoption agencies, and more! Priests will be available to bless pets for the duration of the Fair.

At 2 pm, the Great Animal Costume Parade will commence and all in costume will be invited to circle the Cathedral grounds showcasing their fantastic animal costumes to the community, culminating in a ceremony awarding prizes in one of our 7 categories and celebrating Best In Show!

The award categories are:

  • Most incredible insect
  • Best mythical creature
  • Most magnificent mammal
  • Best ancient animal
  • Most precious peacock
  • Most super ocean dweller
  • Most fantastic beast

We look forward to seeing you there! Please RSVP to participate in the parade.

In the event of rain, we'll update this event with the revised plan.
