Festival of the Horse

The Festival of the Horse will take place on the streets of downtown Georgetown October 3-5, 2014. This annual festival has promoted Scott County’s horse heritage and the downtown community for the past 34 years.  This signature Georgetown event attracts visitors from throughout the region and has become a beloved event for our local citizens. With beloved traditions and exciting activities, the Festival of the Horse is an event locals and visitors won't want to miss!

 

The Georgetown Fire Department kicks off the festivities on Thursday evening, October 2, 2014 with the annual Fireman’s Chili Cook-off. Join in the fun and sample many different chili’s. A great family night out for four around $20! Proceeds go to Toys for Tots for Georgetown/Scott County.


Friday highlights include the Colt and Filly Children’s Parade, the Funtime Carnival, live entertainment, and of course, those wonderful food vendors!

Saturday features Grand Horse Parade, more great food and live entertainment. Sunday winds down the weekend with a pet parade, horse show, and additional activities and entertainment.
