Big Ears Festival Parade & Street Fair
April 1, 2023 @ 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. |
Big Ears has partnered with Knoxville’s Cattywampus Puppet Council to forge Krewe du Cattywampus, pairing giant puppets with music for a New Orleans-inspired, second-line-style parade. Community members of all ages are invited to make giant puppets, masks, costumes and other art for the parade. The parade will start in the Old City at 1 p.m. with lineup at 12 p.m. and then transition into a Street Party from 2-4 p.m. at the Southern Railway Station with local and Big Ears musical acts, kids’ activities, food trucks and more. Both the parade and street party are free to the public. Parade registration is available HERE.
