2023 Butter & Egg Days Parade & Festival
Theme: “There’s No Place Like Home” – Celebrating the Parade’s 40th Ruby Jubilee
Celebrating why Petaluma is the best place on Earth to call home!
The 2023 parade highlights 40 years of tradition in Petaluma and is an opportunity to celebrate our community, our history, and our great sense of fun! This year we ask you to join in celebrating the Ruby Jubilee Anniversary and the theme “There’s no Place Like Home” which will incorporate artistic visions from the Land of OZ, Ruby Slippers, our amazing Earth (as it’s also EARTH DAY), and what makes Petaluma such a special Hometown. This year’s parade should inspire and bring smiles to the masses. It’s our day to shine, celebrate with our community, and show off all of the wonderful qualities Petaluma is known for that makes it the best place on Earth to call home. The parade will showcase over 100 units with approximately 3,000 participants and 200 volunteers.
The Butter & Egg Days Festival is a feast for the entire family offering a wide variety of festival foods, crafts, arts, two large “kid areas,” and so much more all spread over four city blocks. The strength of Petaluma’s giving culture is well documented we are excited and honored to celebrate the generosity and compassion of those that make up the very fabric of our community.
Parade entrants will need to incorporate the theme “There’s No Place Like Home” into their float design. The theme gives nonprofits, businesses, organizations, and individuals lots of options for showing off their creativity in their designs. All parade entries will be judged on how well their entry portrays the Parade theme of “There’s No Place Like Home.”
