The Mid-Tennessee Pug Festival was established to:
- Celebrate the awesomeness of the incomparable canine Pug breed
- Heighten the awareness within the community about Pug fostering and adoption
- Raise funding for the non-profit Pug-related organizations
- Have family-friendly FUN
All attending dogs must be up-to-date on their vaccinations and must remain on a leash during the festival.
