What is Mule Day?
Mule Day is an annual celebration of all things related to mules and is held in Columbia, Tennessee, the Mule Capital of the world. Begun in 1840 as Breeder’s Day, a meeting for mule breeders, it now attracts over 200,000 people and takes place over four days. In addition to mules, traditional Appalachian food, music, dancing, and crafts are featured.
Mule Day History
Mule Day has been a popular Columbia tradition for over 170 years, since the 1840s. It began as Breeder’s Day, a single day livestock show and mule market event held on the first Monday in April. Over time, Mule Day evolved from a single day event into a multi-day festival, attracting thousands of attendees, lasting almost a week. The heavy involvement of Maury County in the mule industry has caused the event to grow over time into one of the largest livestock markets in the world.
