Von Elrod’s Dachshund Derby at Nashville Oktoberfest

Step aside, Pumpkin Spice Latte. Fall in Nashville means only one thing…

The fast and the furriest.

The sausage dog shuffle.


Wiener takes all at the 7th Annual Nashville Oktoberfest Dachshund Derby presented by Von Elrod’s Beer Garden & Sausage House.

A new favorite tradition, the Derby features lightning fast lowriders sprinting towards the finish line for a chance at the coveted title of fastest dachshund in town!

This is a free event and is an absolute MUST for Nashville Oktoberfest!

Do you have the fastest wiener(dog) this side of the Mississippi? Sign up to race for your doxie’s chance at glory and a prized Nashville Oktoberfest Dachshund Derby medal. There are five categories to suit all dachshunds – Puppy, Senior, Mini, Tweenie/Standard, and Dachshund-Mix.
