The last three weekends of races will consist of Dachshund-specific races that qualify dogs in the Dachshund Wiener Nationals. Event organizers reserve the right to determine whether specific dogs meet the AKC standards for dachshund (and may ask for proof of breed.)
Old World is a family-owned destination with a restaurant, event hall, European market, and authentic German pub that opened in 1978. It’s best known for its extensive Oktoberfest celebrations each year. In addition to the races, attendees will have the opportunity to sample traditionally old-world European foods such as bratwurst and strudel.
