Maine Wienerfest is a celebration of dachshunds and the people who love them! The 18th annual Maine Wienerfest will be held on Sunday September 10th, 2023 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. 

Today, this event is hosted by PAWS Animal Adoption Center, a nonprofit animal shelter serving the Midcoast for 48 years!

Activities to include:

  • Grand Parade of Dachshunds,

  • Canine Costume Contest, 

  • Doxie Distance Dash,

  • Sales tent with Wienerfest items, and Raffle opportunities

  • Hotdog Stand

  • Village Soup Food Truck

The Maine Wienerfest will be held rain or shine with gates opening at 10:30am.
