Oktoberfest Wiener Dog Races at Old World Huntington Beach

September 12,22,29: It’s Oktoberfest at Old World Huntington Beach! Dozens of dachshunds scramble in pursuit of fame and imaginative lures as hundreds of spectators cheer them on along a 20-yard cobblestone track.

Handlers encourage, coax, and plead with the willful little dogs to focus on racing to the finish line, instead of the interesting sights, sounds and smells along the route.

All dogs who participate will win a prize. Small breeds under 25 pounds are encouraged to enter on these dates. Sundays, 3 p.m. Spectator adults $5, spectator kids (4-12) $3, Kids 3 and under free. Entry fee $20, includes 2 tickets to Octoberfest.
