Hophaus Dachshund Race will be held on Saturday 23 September. Hophaus Bavarian Bier Bar Grill along with Southgate are proud to bring you the ‘Hophaus Annual Dachshund Race’ as part of Oktoberfest celebrations.

Don't miss the dog race that stops the nation.

The races will be held at the Southgate Podium Level where heats started at 11:00am, finals and then a costume parade competition. An amazing day of fun to watch the gorgeous dachshunds running down a 15 meters long track, you should see them go.

There will be a big screen, MC, music, coffee and hot dog stand, prize, raffles and 100 odd cute Dachshunds running around showing off in and out of costume. Join in at Hophaus afterwards for a celebratory Stein. All money raised from raffle and race entry goes to Dachshund Rescue Australia.

No entry fee to watch. All dogs must be pre-registered.
