Devon Horse Show and County Fair Logo

The Devon Country Fair is responsible for raising over $14,000,000 in support of Bryn Mawr Hospital. 

Both the Devon Horse Show and Country Fair have contributed to a number of earmarked projects to ensure that Bryn Mawr Hospital is the premier community hospital. 

Gifts have included:

  • Comprehensive Breast Center
  • Expansion of the Emergency Department, ICU, and NICU
  • Assisting in the purchase of new medical equipment and patient beds.

The Devon Country Fair

Part of what makes this event such a wonderful experience is the high-level and diversity of competition, the quality of vendors, and the focus on fun for the entire family.

Depending on where you go, you may find yourself with a hot dog and soda, or a garden salad and a glass of wine. Between the country fair and the horse show, Devon is host to approximately 73 total vendors. The breadth of the Devon retail displays provides a complete shopping experience with leather goods, jewelry, clothing, art, saddles, interior design, riding apparel, boots, knitwear, engraving, handbags, and so much more.

Memorial Day at Devon Horse Show

The Devon Horse Show is a premier qualifying show that brings the world’s top competitors to ride in this multi-discipline and multi-breed competition. Riders must accumulate enough points through the United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) in order to even register as a competitor. (See Qualifying Lists).

New to Devon for 2017 is a $50,000 arena eventing class, a dog show, and a Memorial Day tribute to heroes, including war veterans, active and retired military, policemen, firemen, and EMTs.

According to Carson Kressley, Saddlebred exhibitor and judge of the annual Devon hat contest, 

“Devon is one of the greatest shows in the country. It's where you come, watch and dream of competing.”

Honoring the driving divisions, Caracol now carries a Hackney Harness Pin to wear for good luck, a bit of British charm, and a wonderful way to add equestrian inspiration to any outfit.
