Kick off Cinco de Mayo with a cold Corona, live music, and adorable dogs at our 7th annual Running of the Chihuahuas. Watch more than 90 chihuahuas race to win pet-friendly gifts, and dress up your own pooch for a chance to win prizes in our pet costume contest.

Don’t have a dog? That’s all right! Stop by to see the race and enjoy libations at our Waterfront Beer & Wine Garden, play mini golf, and eat some delicious food. There’ll be a live DJ, a photo booth, and activities for kids, too.

Register your pup to race here through May 4. Admission is free and the rain date is May 6.

This beloved event is produced in partnership with On Tap Magazine. Proceeds from the race will go to Rural Dog Rescue.

Keep the fun going during our Running of the Chihuahuas race on Cinco De Mayo! Head downstairs to Union Stage's basement venue for cold beer and hot slices. And don’t let the name fool you—the Union Stage Basement Beer Garden is family-friendly, free, and open to all.
