About this event
DC’s funniest Cinco de Mayo celebration returns to The Wharf for a day of fun and festivities.
Celebrate the 10th Annual Running of the Chihuahuas and take part in amazing amenities like cold Pacifico beer, live music, family fun, and of course the races!
Featuring over 90 Chihuahuas racing in groups of eight on a sixty foot “race track,” all the action is captured on a huge video wall and the winners take home pet-friendly gifts, prizes, and more!
All race proceeds benefit Rural Dog Rescue, a non-profit organization dedicated to pulling dogs from high-kill rural shelters.
The deadline to register your chihuahua is May 6th and costs $30. Otherwise, admission is free and open to all.
