Running of the Chihuahuas - RESCHEDULED

Sun May 15, 2022
2:00pm to 5:00pm ET
All ages

This event was rescheduled to May 15 due to inclement weather. DC’s funniest Cinco de Mayo celebration returns to The Wharf for a day of fun and festivities. There will be live music, fun family activities, and chihuahua races. The races features over 90 Chihuahuas racing in groups of eight on a 60-foot “race track” and winners take home pet-friendly gifts and prizes.

The cost is $30 per dog racing and all proceeds benefit Rural Dog Rescue – a non-profit organization dedicated to pulling dogs from high-kill rural shelters.
