Devon’s equestrian extravaganza does not horse around. Dating back to 1896, this 11-day event includes shopping, food, competitions, family activities, and a County Fair. Competitors from across the country participate in the multi-breed event, and a $20 bill can give attendees a one-day pass, writes Laura Swartz for Philadelphia Magazine.
The Devon Horse Show goes until June 4, and there’s still an abundance of activities left to indulge in. This year’s theme is “Devon in Bloom.” Those with a knack for cosplay can participate in Ladies Day, which includes dressing up in old-fashioned attire and participating in a hat competition followed by a luncheon.
Later, the Sapphire Grand Prix hosts the best riders to compete for a Blue Ribbon and a $250,000 prize. Reserved seating costs $80 each. There will be live music on the grounds each day from 7 to 10 PM.
Attendees can enjoy an array of fair eats including Devon fries, lemon sticks, ice cream, and funnel cakes, or grab a cup of tea from the 100-year-old Devon Tea Cart.
Proceeds from the show go towards Bryn Mawr Hospital.
