Spectator admission to Wiener Stadium is free or click here for the VIP treatment

Your wiener has been working hard all offseason for this, and now the time has arrived for the nation’s longest-running wiener dog derby! Participants square off in Wiener Stadium at Soulard Market to determine the dashingest dachshund in all of the land. 

As usual, in a series of six-dog elimination heats, competitors race down a 30-foot track with the winning wiener moving on to the next round until a champion is crowned. However, NEW THIS YEAR: there will be a Tito's Wiener Dog Derby hat contest (for hoomans only) so make sure you come dressed for the derby! 

There are four age-based classes for participating pups.

  • Cocktail Wieners: Up to 4 years old
  • Hot Dogs: 4-8 years old
  • Ball Park Franks: 8 years and older
  • Wiener Wannabe: Dogs small enough to fit in the starting box

Registration is available the day of the event, but in order to avoid a distracted dachshund, register online and hit the ground running on race day. Online registration coming soon
