This year’s edition of the Devon Horse Show and Country Fair — which runs from Thursday, May 25 through Sunday, June 4 — has something for everyone.

Horse lovers can expect daily world-class equestrian competition. Shoppers will adore the dozens of unique pop-up clothing, jewelry, art, and houseware boutiques. Families will love the exciting carnival, with midway games, rides, and a Ferris wheel. And when visitors get hungry, multiple dining venues will give them plenty of options, from fun fair foods to more refined options.

Plus, the Devon Tea Cart will be serving up Devon’s traditional lemon sticks and fudge. The Horse Show also boasts a robust schedule of special events, including Ladies Day (complete with Devon’s renowned Hat Contest), a Memorial Day Tribute to our heroes, and even appearances from the majestic Budweiser Clydesdales.

The Horse Show is North America’s longest-running and largest outdoor multi-breed equestrian competition.
