Celebrate the Sixth Annual Running of the Chihuahuas with us! 1pm – 5pm on Saturday, May 20 at Wharf DC – DC’s amazing new destination taking shape on the southwest waterfront. The Running of the Chihuahuas is part of DC’s best Cinco de Mayo celebration, an afternoon that includes great food from SOL mexican grill DC, Red Hook Lobster Pound DC and Captain Cookie and the Milk Man food trucks, cold beer, live music and of course, the races.

The highlight of the afternoon, the races feature 128 Chihuahuas racing in groups of eight on a sixty foot “race track.” All the action is captured on a 17 foot Jumbotron screen and the winners take home $500 in cash and prizes. ALL race proceeds benefit Rural Dog Rescue – a non-profit organization dedicated to pulling dogs from high-kill rural shelters.

Don’t have a Chihuahua? You can still take part in the excitement with the all breed contests for best dressed dog and best trick! There will be local vendors and giveaways from DC’s pet friendly businesses.

Deadline to register dogs online is Friday, May 19, walkups on race day accepted until all spots are full. $25 per dog to race. This is a family and dog-friendly, admission-free event, but you must be 21+ to drink beer. To enter and for more information, visit cincodc.com!
