There Can Only Be One Speed Wiener!

Join us for the 15th Annual Central Bark Dachshund Dash at Oakland Park Oktoberfest 2019!  Races start at 4pm on Saturday, October 5th at Jaco Pastorius Park.

Oktoberfest is home to the Central Bark sponsored Dachshund Dash. For the last 15 years, thousands of South Floridians have come to the Oktoberfest celebration to see these short, stubby dogs race each other. Hundreds of adorable Dachshunds and their families in the tri-county area show up for the event.

Because the event is so popular pre-registration is required by calling (954) 568-3647 or you can register online. There will be no onsite registration on the day of the event. Registration will end at 5pm on Friday, October 4th. REGISTER NOW!
