Barks & Brews

Enjoy a day with your furry bestie at Oktoberfest USA!  There will be activities throughout the day, including the Dachshund Dash and Viener Vogue.  To keep the Fest grounds friendly for all we ask that pets be under the control of their owner and that guests use the Elimination Stations located at the Downtown Grounds for pet relief.
