Show Your Support







Do you remember you first trip to Shelbyville for the Celebration? The excitement…the thrill…and you could literally “feel” The Celebration all around town. One of the symbols that encouraged that feeling was the bows and the flags that proudly displayed community support of the show.

Virginia Stewart, walking horse owner and supporter of The Celebration, is working diligently to help bring back the support and excitement to Shelbyville by encouraging businesses, home owners, exhibitors, spectators and everyone in between to “Show Your Support” by purchasing and proudly displaying the symbol of the World’s Greatest Horse Show, the tri-color ribbon.

You can purchase your bows from the following florists that are supporting this campaign or the florist of your choice. Depending on the size of bow you purchase, cost varies, the small bows cost on average $5-$6, medium $15-$16 and the large bows for $20-$21. Contact your florist in advance to place your reservation and have your bows on display by August 9th through The Celebration!
