Price: $15
Venue: Levitt Pavilion SteelStacks

On your bark! Get set! Register! The annual running of the wiener dogs is back at Oktoberfest presented by Lehigh Valley International Airport (ABE) with even more wiener dog events. This year, we will have a parade and race every Saturday and Sunday of the festival. (Oct. 5-6 & 12-13) Your $15 fee includes registration to both events on the day you register for! We will be crowning a King and Queen for every parade and 3rd, 2nd, and 1st place winners of each day’s races will leave with prizes.

Parade will begin at 2 p.m. and Races begin at 3 p.m. Check in for parade and race will begin at 1 p.m. at the Levitt Pavilion. Please arrive no later than 1:45 p.m. for the parade. If you only wish to participate in the race, please check in no later than 2:45 p.m.

Your dog will race at least two times! We race in a double elimination bracket, so even if your dog loses the first race, they still have a chance to win it all! See the graphic below for a visual on the double elimination racing format. If you arrive after the first round of races, your dog will not be able to participate in that days race. You may transfer your ticket to a race on another day of the festival.

If you have more than one dog participating, or would like to participate on more than one day, you must fill out and pay for another registration.
