Every spring, folks come from all over Texas for the 20th Annual Buda Wiener Dog Races at Buda City Park. You can pack up the kids and take a short drive south of Austin on Saturday, Apr. 29 and Sunday, Apr. 30 from 8 a.m. – 6 p.m. to check out all the family-friendly fun! This annual country fair begins with the cutest pet parade at 9 a.m., followed by the nationally known Wiener Dog Races at 10 a.m. where the speediest dachshunds take to the track. This fundraiser for the Buda Lion’s Club includes a BBQ cook-off, a bake-off, arts & crafts, games for the kids, a washer tournament and lots of entertainment.
