The 86th Annual Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration will be held August 21-31, 2024 on its historic show grounds in Shelbyville. Earlier this summer, an entry deadline for preliminary class entries was set for July 23rd at 5:00PM central standard time. This deadline was earlier than in past years by approximately a week. 
In response to requests this year and over the past several years, The Celebration® board of directors has made the decision to keep the original entry deadline of July 23rd, but also allow late entries through July 30th at 5:00PM CST. All late entries will be charged double the normal entry fee for entries received after the original July 23rd date. 
Online entries will once again be accepted by The Celebration® this year starting July 14th. The Celebration® will take entries not made online, in the Blue Ribbon Circle on both July 22nd and 23rd until 5:00PM each day.
