Sunday Hund-day isn’t just for Dachshunds anymore! Bring your hund – any hund – to Addison Oktoberfest on Sunday. All dogs must be leashed and picked up after.


Tag-A-Kid keeps Addison Oktoberfest's smallest festival-goers safe! Children are given temporary wristbands that list their parent's contact information and get their photo taken. The system makes it easier to return a lost or separated child.
