Maine Wienerfest is a celebration of dachshunds and the people who love them! Now in its 14th year, the event will be held on Sunday September 10th 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 and The Friends of Belfast Parks continue the tradition with all proceeds benefitting P.A.W.S.

In addition to the picnic social, organized events include a Grand Parade of Dachshunds, Canine Costume Contest and a Doxie Derby. This year, there will be a “Wanna-be a Wiener” heat added to the races, so other breeds can have an opportunity to participate in the fun! There will be also be a Wiener Cook-off Contest 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 under 12 years old and dogs. Food and pet-related vendors will be available on-site. For more information, please visit We hope to see you there!
