Fall Classic judges announced

The Celebration will host the Fall Classic on November 5-7, 2020 at Calsonic Arena. The show was originally scheduled to be hosted in Tunica but due to restrictions around Covid-19 the decision was made to move the show to Calsonic Arena.

Judging the Fall Classic will be Jennifer Bingham, Chris Bobo and Steve Glidewell. The trio come from a geographically diverse area with Bingham in Kentucky, Bobo in Tennessee and Glidewell in Mississippi. Both Bingham and Bobo have judged numerous Celebration events, however the Fall Classic will be Bingham’s first judging assignment since the 2018 Alabama Jubilee.

Glidewell will be marking the cards for the first time at a Celebration event. His previous most prominent judging assignment was the 2019 Christmas in July over the traditional 4th of July holiday weekend of shows. The Celebration remains committed to expanding the judging pool and providing new judges the opportunity to work at some of the industry’s largest shows.

The Fall Classic will also offer a new class in 2020 that is for two-year-old’s that have not yet shown in 2020.  The class which will be an open class for performance two-year-old’s will also have an increased payback of $1000 and feature other incentives to be announced closer to the show date. A final class schedule will be released on October 5th.
