Over a 110 years old the Devon Horse Show established in 1896 is the largest and oldest multi breed outdoor show, if you want get the whole history. Basically it was started by some of the welathy families in the area located along the famous Philadelphia Main Line close to Devon train station at what was then the Devon Race Track & Polo Grounds. It will run this year from May 24th through June 3rd.
Today the show looks very different, with a country fair running alongside it is an event where families attend and which also draws international competitors. You won't go hungry as there are plenty of booths willing to serve you just what you need. There are also plenty of shops taking the opportunity to sell horse related wares as well as other items which might appeal to the well healed crowd that attends.
For a full list of horse show events you can go to the calendar.
However, the main purpose of the show is to raise funds for Bryn Mawr Hospital, and over 3,000 volunteers are involved in planning and running the show and fair.
To book tickets their is a dedicated page on the horse show site. Getting to the show is easy. If you come from out of town a list of hotels is available, although you may already find many of these are full.
Devon Fair Grounds have other events throughout the year, a recent event last month held there was a competition between local builders to build frames as fast as they could for homes being sent down to New Orleans and the region devastated by Hurrican Katrina.
