Von Elrod’s Dachshund Derby
THE FAST AND THE FURRIEST!
What’s an Oktoberfest without Wieners?! Another family favorite at the Oktoberfest is the annual Wiener Dog races! Officially known as the Dachshund Derby, this event pits adorable Dachshunds competing to the finish line down our 50′ track. To the victor go the spoils! Winning dogs in each racing category are awarded a coveted Oktoberfest Dachshund Derby medal.
The competition is fierce. And it’s Wiener take all!
But don’t worry, our official Vet will be on hand to make sure all our Oktoberfest Wieners receive the finest of care!

ANNUAL PUP PARADE
We love our dogs at Oktoberfest! While the dachshunds take center stage in their Derby on Sunday, all dogs are welcome to participate in the Annual Pup Parade. Owners & their pets, dressed in costume, march at the tail end (no pun intended!) of the regular Oktoberfest Parade. Festival goers love seeing the zany costumes these dogs wear as they march down the street. Following the parade, festival goers vote and award prizes to the dogs/owners in 4 different categories. Come out and watch, then help pick the winners!
Come watch the parade on Saturday at 1:00pm. Parade starts at the Main Music Stage continuing through the festival grounds of the Nashville Oktoberfest.
IT’S FREE TO ATTEND!
