Day of the Dackel

A day of dachshund fun at Henley Park, Edenhope, Victoria.
For overnight visitors (Saturday 15th April) there will be dinner at a venue to be confirmed from 6pm where a PJ party will take place. Dachshunds and people can wear PJs if they choose.


On Sunday 16th:


Get your dachshunds running! Head out to Edenhope for its first ever dachshund race. Entries will be taken on the day at $15 per dog. There will also be a non-dachshund race for dogs under 30cm at the shoulder/wither.
There will be a dachshund fashion parade, fun events, market stalls, food stalls, and a walk down to the hostel so the residents can enjoy the dachshunds too.


Local musical duo Elke & Tom Boston will perform numbers from the 50s, 60s and 70s up on stage at various times during the day.
