This is a wonderful place to take your family. The people are friendly and if you like horses then you will greatly enjoy the show. I enjoy the atmosphere with the organ music, food and fellowship.

There is nothing like the celebration....just a wonderful tradition and a great experience for all. You have to pick up the donuts outside of the arena....eat em all!

I have been to several Celebrations, it is a ten day long horse extravaganza.

They have versatility classes with barrel... More

this is the venue to come to. You really get the "old time" feel at this great annual event. And it doesn't cost an arm and a leg.

I don't know a lot about horses but I love the showmanship of the walking horse. Also the farms in the area are something to see.

40,000 fans on a Saturday night in late August - the stadium lights off and one spotlight zeroes in on one stallion as he is crowned World Grand Champion. The spotlight follows him as he takes his victory pass. A THRILL. This horse show will even impress the non-horse lover.
