Wiener Dog Race

You don’t want to miss these little guys rushing to the finish line – or anywhere else their noses happen to lead them. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry – but most importantly, it’ll make you thirsty for more beer!

Schedule

  • FRI, Sept. 12th @ 9:00pm
  • SAT, Sept. 13th @ 12:00pm
  • SAT, Sept. 13th @ 9:30’ishpm (PSU Half-Time Show)

Got a dachshund??

Click here to sign up your Wiener!

 

Registration is FREE – PLUS you’ll get two (2) FREE One Day Passes for signing up! Wiener dog owners may register their Wiener for one (1) race time slot per day if they wish. Sign up now because we may have to limit the # of races per dog if things get too crowded at any particular time.

As we have in the past, dogs will be broken into “Heats” within each time slot loosely based on height & weight. Prizes will be awarded to the overall winner of the championship heat within each race time slot. We may have to limit the # of Championship Prizes each dog wins (so we can spread the love) – but we do still encourage winners to participate in additional races.

Note: We also plan to award “Completely Subjective” awards from time to time throughout the weekend for Best Costume, Cutest Dog, Best Performance, Peoples Choice, etc. – so be sure to come prepared.

Registration will be open thru Friday, August 29th and we will notify all dog owners with a confirmation of the race times they’ve entered on Tuesday, September 1st. We will then mail out (2) FREE One Day Passes for each of the days selected.

Good luck!

Contests

More Great PA Oktoberfest Competitions!

The Strong Man & Woman:  Okto-Beer Pitcher Holding Event

  • Friday, September 12 @ 7:00 PM
  • Saturday, September 13 @ 1:00 PM & 7:00 PM
  • Sunday, September 14 @ 1:00 PM

The Strong Man & Woman Contest is NOT a drinking game. The competition is all about holding a 64 oz PA Oktoberfest Pitcher (filled w beer) with an outstretched arm in compliance with the rules set by the organizers. The winners will receive a TROPHY (est value about 2 bucks) – but they will ALSO receive our enduring respect and admiration. All contestants get to keep their 64 oz Oktoberfest Pitcher (filled w beer)…

If you wish to participate in the “Strong Man &/or Woman Okto-Beer Pitcher Holding Contest” please report to the 2nd stage area approximately ½ hour before the contest is scheduled to begin (see schedule above). Please Note: You should be prepared to participate in some type of activity featuring “feats of strength” as we select our final field of competitors for each round.

REINHARD RETURNS – Sunday, September 14 @ 1:00 PM!!

Male winners on Friday & Saturday are welcome to come back on Sunday at 1:00 PM to compete against our reigning Grand Champion REINHARD!! Last year, the mild mannered (60+ year old) REINHARD absolutely dismantled ALL the young (and massive) guns that made it to the stage for the final competition. You have GOT to see it, this guy was born to hold a pitcher of beer!
