Bud Light Derby Day featuring the Tito’s Wiener Dog Derby

February 13 -  2pm

Facebook Live

On your mark, get set, go! We can’t all gather at the wiener’s circle in Soulard Market Plaza this year, but that doesn’t mean we have to miss out on everyone’s favorite pint sized pooches contending for the fastest hot dog in town title. Tune in to Facebook to watch this year’s virtual wiener dog races.

But before the running of the wieners, we invite you to register for the chance to win a spot for your pooch in Canine 1 Racing’s Grand Prix Championship! Each lucky pup will have his or her likeness featured on one of 24 finalist derby cars, racing in one of four brackets on the fastest 35 feet of track in the world. Tune in on Derby Day to see if your racer qualified. Prizes will go to the winning wieners.
