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!
