Dachshund Dash Race and Costume Parade at Linde Oktoberfest


Oct 21, 2018
01:00 PM until 03:00 PM


Wiener dogs are already funny to look at. Now try watching over 100 of them zig, zag, jump, and generally get confused in a test of speed and intelligence! Ok, we’re being dramatic. The pups just need to run 100 feet from one end of the Dash to the other in the Karbach Games Arena. But this is one of Linde Oktoberfest's Tulsa's Best Traditions and we want you to come watch Sunday afternoon at Oktobefest!


Do you have dachshund with a need for speed and a nose for the finish line? Sound easy enough? Start training your wiener dog now! Dogs wear numbered Hot Dog Bun costumes and compete in heats of ten. Dogs in each heat are escorted on leash the full length of the course to encourage wagering by spectators. Winners receive Festival Money and prizes:

First – $150 Festival Money
Second – $100 Festival Money
Third – $50 Festival Money and use of the wiener dog outhouse.

Winning races will be nationally televised on ESPN (Enter Special Pups Now) network (aka Everyone in the grandstands live streaming).

NOTE: Competition is FREE to enter, but pre-registration required and admission ticket must be purchased separately (dogs get in free).


ALSO PLEASE NOTE: Due to health department rules, you cannot bring your dox into das Zelts (Tents).
