Winter Weekends

Winter Weekends has been going for 16 years, starting with flagship events like the world famous Dachshund Dash (it literally got on the news in Germany, and Ipswich). We brighten the cold months in fresh ways. Get to know our town, its people, locales and stories in the most refreshing time of the year.

15th Annual Community Bank Port Fairy & District Dachshund Dash - Sunday 11 June, 2023

After three years of covid cancellations, they’re back and bigger - well, not really - than ever. It’s not called the Melbourne Cup of dog racing for nothing! Immerse yourself in the thrill of 100 canines dashing, leaping or sniffing to the finish line. Cheer the scurrying runners, most with more heart than sense of direction, as they race to be top dog.
