36th Annual Butter & Egg Days Parade
April 29 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm| Free
Brimming with authentic small town pride and personality, Petaluma’s Butter & Egg Days Festival and Parade on April 29, 2017 pays tribute to Petaluma’s place in history as the “World’s Egg Basket” and our rich agricultural heritage. Originally created in the 1900’s to promote Petaluma as part of National Egg Day, the parade has grown to more than 130 parade units attracting 30,000 people into downtown on the last weekend in April.
The festivities kick off on Saturday with only-in-Petaluma competitions including the “Cutest Little Chick Contest” where adorable toddlers don feathers and yellow onesies hoping to be crowned the “cutest” and the good natured “Cow Chip Tossing Contest” where local celebrities compete for bragging rights. The parade begins at noon followed by music, food and family fun throughout the afternoon in thedowntown district.
