The world-famous Budweiser Clydesdales, the symbol of quality and tradition for Anheuser-Busch since 1933, are scheduled to make several public appearances in the area the first week of December, including the Turkey Creek Shopping Center with WIVK (Dec. 1), Food City #651 in Maryville (Dec. 2), the Fantasy of Lights Christmas Parade in Gatlinburg (Dec. 3), and another surprise visit in Knoxville on Dec. 5 (details coming soon).

The eight-horse hitch will be harnessed and hitched to the famous red beer wagon at various locations across East Tennessee the first week of December. The Clydesdales’ appearance in East Tennessee is one of hundreds made annually by the traveling hitches. Canadians of Scottish descent brought the first Clydesdales to America in the mid-1800’s.


Wednesday, Dec. 1 from 3 - 7 p.m. - Turkey Creek Shopping Center with WIVK, JCPenney Parking Lot, 11534 Parkside Dr, Farragut, TN 37934

Thursday, Dec. 2 from 4 - 7 p.m. - Food City #651 in Maryville, 1715 W Broadway Ave, Maryville, TN 37801

The world-famous Budweiser Clydesdales will be harnessed and hitched to the classic red beer wagon, including a Dalmation coach dog. In the early days of brewing, Dalmatians were bred and trained to protect the horses and guard the wagon when the driver went inside to make deliveries. These appearances are open to the public.
