Now in its 18th year, this event started out small and quickly grew in popularity. Hundreds of folks from across the Northwest come to Ellensburg to proudly show off their beloved Dachshunds.
Events include a Short Parade, Dachshund Races, Stupid Pet Tricks, and Costume Contest. Come early and enjoy Breakfast with the Dogs Pancake Feed sponsored by the Rodeo City Kiwanis Club.
BREAKFAST WITH THE DOGS!
Start your busy morning off with a pancake feed brought to you by the Ellensburg Kiwanis Club! You and your pup can enjoy a hearty meal from 7-9 AM.
DACHSHUNDS AFTER PARTY!
The dachshund events may be over, but the party doesn't stop! Head over to Cornerstone Pie at 307 E 5th Ave for house-made doggy treats, a pool just for the pooches, live music, and a costume contest! The winner will receive a $50 gift card. You can also stop by D&M Coffee for a puppuccino station outside and more house-made treats!
