Bradenton Spring Festival
Please join us for the 2023 Bradenton Spring Festival hosted by the Humane Society of Manatee County! This exciting event is family and pet friendly and will provide our community with fun activities for all ages.
From 11 am-2 pm on Saturday, March 25th, you can enjoy a DJ, food/beverages, a race course for pooches, pet photos, face painting, games, and more! There will be vendors excited to meet you that will be handing out free items for you and your family!
Our team has come up with a fun way for you to help us raise funds for vital programs at HSMC. At the festival, you will have the chance to decorate and fly Care Kites to celebrate all of you and the amazing support you have given us for decades! Each of our four kites represents a core program of ours: Adoptions, Spay/Neuter, Trap Neuter Return, and our Pet Safety Net. Kites can be purchased HERE or at the festival.
We will also be giving out prizes for individuals and teams who collect the most in donations! Want your pet to be featured at next year’s event? Our top donor will win their pet the title of HSMC’s 2024 “SpokesPet” and be the face of next year’s event! Create your fundraiser at https://givebutter.com/BradentonSpringFestival.

For the last 16 years, we raised funds through our “Paws in Motion” event. This walk-a-thon was wonderful for the community and we are very grateful for your support! This year, the Riverwalk is under construction, so, we put our thinking caps on, and decided to expand “Paws in Motion” into a festival! We could really use your support in helping us make this new festival a successful fundraiser for HSMC. The animals need you! Tickets can be purchased at https://givebutter.com/BradentonSpringFestival.
