2020 Bird Dog Parade Information

Registration is now OPEN for the 2020 Bird Dog Parade at Pheasant Fest & Quail Classic.

WHAT: The annual Bird Dog Parade will once again kick-off the 2020 National Pheasant Fest & Quail Classic in Minneapolis, Minnesota on February 14-16. All parade participants will walk the parade route to the ribbon cutting ceremony that will open up the weekend show. This event is unique to National Pheasant Fest & Quail Classic and is highly attended. Last year in Schaumburg, we had over 100 dogs participate representing over 35 different sporting dog breeds.

WHEN: Friday, February 14th at 11:00 am

WHERE: the Minneapolis Convention Center 

DETAILS: Check-in for participants will begin at 10:00 am until 10:50 am on Friday, February 14 and will be open until 10:50 am. The parade will begin promptly at 11:00 am. Due to the size of the parade, no day-of admissions are allowed. 

REGISTRATION: Registration runs on a first come, first served basis and all breeds have a limit in order to include as many dogs (and breeds) as possible. This page will be updated as breeds hit their limit so please check the list below before submitting your registration form. Please use the form below to register your dog and reserve your spot in the parade. All fields are required.

You are officially registered once you receive a confirmation email. If you have not received an email within 24 hours (during the work week) after you submit your registration, please reach out to Grace directly, with the contact information listed below.

Please consider supporting Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever if you are signing up for this event. You can renew your membership or join by clicking HERE.
