PetSmart Wiener Dog Derby

Go to Soulard Market Park for the PetSmart Wiener Dog Derby in Rudy Commons in Soulard Market Plaza!


What is it?

The longest-running Dachshund Derby in America is back for its 18th year.  Enjoy the Sport of Weenies as wiener dogs compete in three aged-based categories: Cocktail Weenies, Ballpark Franks, and Hot Dogs, for the title of fastet Weenie! The races take place over a series of elimination heats until we have the Dash of Champions in each age category.


What can I do?

If you own a Dachshund enter your beloved pet in the respective age category and watch ‘em run.  If you don’t own a Dachshund but love a great race, come and watch America’s Fastest 30 Seconds from the bleachers or sidelines!
