Celebration Sponsors Party To Again Be Held At Blue Ribbon



The Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration’s corporate sponsor party will once again be held on the first Saturday night of the 2018 Celebration in the Blue Ribbon Circle club, prior to the show that night.  

 

In 2017, under the leadership of board member Rick Insell, the Celebration moved the party from Sunday night to Saturday night and instead of hosting it at a local resident’s home had the party at the Blue Ribbon Circle Club on the show grounds.

 

“The move last year was an overwhelming success as our attendance skyrocketed and the sponsors were treated to an improved Blue Ribbon Circle Club experience,” said Celebration CEO Mike Inman. “Coach Insell did a fantastic job coordinating last year’s event and we are very excited that he has once again agreed to spearhead this important event. He has promised us it will be even better this year.”

 

The move to the show grounds allowed those participating in the show to attend without having to drive back to the show in time for their performances. In addition, the traditional Sunday date missed some of the sponsors who had returned home for a couple of days after the first weekend of the show to return before championship weekend. 

 

The corporate sponsor party will be held Saturday Aug. 25. For sponsorship opportunities for the 80thAnnual Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration contact the Celebration at 931-684-5915.
