Devon, Pa. – May 15, 2020 – Although the community may not be able to gather together around the Dixon Oval for the 124th Devon Horse Show and Country Fair (DHSCF), the organizing committee is pleased to announce that it will be hosting a “Virtual Horse Show”; in honor of this year’s missed event the DHSCF will be sharing exciting new content throughout each day on social media beginning May 18 and through what would have been the duration of the show on May 31st.
Each day will feature personal interviews with world-class equestrian athletes, junior and amateur competitors, and staff who will share their favorite Devon memories and behind the scenes secrets. There will be limited edition souvenirs for sale, a junior fashion show, and unique Ladies’ Day events for the public to participate in, featuring a new equestrian category. There will be several contests, so be sure to check in daily to see everything the Virtual Devon Horse Show has to offer, including photos from exhibitors and fans of their favorite Devon memories.
Make sure to follow the DHSCF on Facebook and Instagram for access to everything during the Virtual Horse Show. The events showcased during the Virtual Horse Show will also feature vendors and sponsors who are part of the horse show community.
“While we are disappointed that the show can’t go on as normal, we are excited about offering the Virtual Devon Horse Show for 2020,” stated DHSCF Chairman and CEO Wayne W. Grafton. “This is a wonderful opportunity to bring our entire community together to celebrate the history of Devon. We hope that you will join us in keeping the tradition of Devon alive during these unprecedented times.”
Although the community cannot be together physically, we are all looking forward to reliving the history and magic of the DHSCF through the virtual event. The team continues to prepare for the Devon Fall Classic in September 2020 and the historic 125th anniversary of the DSCHF in 2021.
