The Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration® has cancelled the Celebration Fall Classic scheduled for October 13-15, 2011, at the Celebration Grounds in Shelbyville.  Dr. Doyle Meadows, Celebration CEO said, “Several different Walking Horse groups discussed with Celebration officials the prospect of moving the Celebration to a date later in the fall. 

The Fall Classic was an attempt to evaluate the feasibility of such a drastic date change after over 70 years of The Celebration® being held immediately prior to Labor Day.  We quickly learned that we did not have the number of horses or fan base to support such a move.  Although the quality of horses shown at the 2010 Fall Classic was exceptional, the lack of horses and community support dictated the decision to cancel the event.”

The Annual Spring Fun Show will be held May 24-26, 2012, and the 74th Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration® will be held August 22–September 1.  For more information visit our website
