Maine Wienerfest is a celebration of dachshunds and the people who love them! The 16th annual Maine Wienerfest will be held on Sunday September 8th, 2019 from 11am-3pm at the Steamboat Landing Park in Belfast.

Maine Wienerfest originated as an informal picnic and gathering for families who lived with these adorable, tiny dogs. Gradually, it grew to include other activities with the number of dogs and dog lovers increasing each year. This year, P.A.W.S. Animal Adoption Center continues the tradition with all proceeds benefitting the shelter.

In addition to the picnic social, organized events include a Grand Parade of Dachshunds, Canine Costume Contest, Doxie Derby, and raffle opportunities!

The Maine Wienerfest will be held rain or shine with gates opening at 10:30am. Admission is $3 for adults; free for children (12 & under) and dogs. 


Food and pet-related vendors will be available on-site.
