The Siuslaw News, Florence Events Center and the Florence Wiener Races are partnering together to bring a fun new event to Florence, Okto-Fur-Fest!

October 13, 11:30-3pm join us for great food and family fun! Music will play and games will be held throughout the day.

The Wiener Dog Races will be a highlight of Okto-Fur-Fest.  These fierce competitors go head-to-head or perhaps head-to-tail starting at noon.  They line up in the starting box and tear down the new race field, inside the Florence Events Center, at tremendous speed! It is $10 to enter your dachshund and includes entry to the event. This year a new race for all breeds under 15 lbs will be held. Registration and raffle proceeds will be donated to the Florence Van Fans.

Brats, beer & wine will served by the Friends of the Florence Events Center and Florence Regional Arts Alliance.

Entry to the event is $2 

An extra $5 will get you a VIP seat w/ a wristband

Tickets are available for pre-sale at the FEC box office or at the door the day of the event

Children 5 and under are free

To register your dog for the races please contact Jeanna Petersen at 541-902-3529.
