The Wienerschnitzel Wiener Nationals will be held for the first time since 2019 when an expected 100 dachshunds will compete in the event’s 25th running on Saturday night, July 16 at Los Alamitos Race Course.
The Wienerschnitzel Wiener Nationals will get underway at 6:30 p.m., with proceeds from the event benefiting the Seal Beach Animal Care Center, a non-profit group dedicated to finding home for stray animals in the Orange County area.
The Wienerschnitzel Wiener Nationals consists of 50-yard dashes for dachshunds over the racetrack at Los Alamitos, the same one where the horses run. A string of four-legged sausages will race throughout the night with the winning wieners moving on to the 25th Wienerschnitzel Wiener Nationals final.
The low rolling doxies will be looking to earn cash prizes, but most importantly, the quickest of them all will win the coveted title of “Fastest Wiener In the West.” First place prize to the winning owner is $1,000. The champion wiener will also receive a doghouse in the shape of a Wienerschnitzel restaurant, plus the “Fastest Wiener in the West” trophy. Local doxies from Cypress, Los Alamitos, Seal Beach, Long Beach plus many more from all throughout Southern California will be in action on this action-packed, zany, and wild night of fun for the entire family.
Live horse racing will also be held in addition to the dachshund races. VIP seating to enjoy the event is available by calling 714-820-2681. General Admission tickets on the day of the event at Los Alamitos are $3 per person. Children 17 and under are admitted free. Los Alamitos Race Course features free general parking.
