Celebration to take online entries for Fun Show




The Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration will launch a new online entry system for this year’s 50th Anniversary Fun Show. The Fun Show will be held June 25-27 in Maverick Arena. Due to recommendations issued by the Tennessee Department of Agriculture as well as the Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders’ & Exhibitors’ Association and Walking Horse Trainers’ Association to combat the COVID-19 pandemic and its spread, the Celebration will implement the online entry system.

The system will be available for entry from June 19th – 23rd.  For those not comfortable with the online system, paper entries will be taken at the show just as in years past.  “We are hopeful that our online system will be utilized by our entrants this year and we are committed to helping everyone through this process should they encounter any issues.  However, we do realize that the online system can be a challenge for some which is why we will continue to offer our traditional system of entry in addition to the new online system,” said Celebration Director of Operations Connie Allen.

If trainers or exhibitors have any questions or problems they should contact Celebration Entry Office Manager Emily Gill.  The Celebration intends to utilize the same system for entries at the Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration to be held August 26 – September 5, 2020.
