Every day is a good day for families at Devon! The rings remain busy, and the Country Fair & Midway provide a constant source of favorite foods and entertainment. Family Days are held on the first Thursday, and the first Tuesday, and the last day of the show, Sunday. On the last day of the show, Devon offers special deals all day on food, rides and souvenirs at the Country Fair & Midway.
Favorite classes on the first Saturday, include the two Lead Line classes (featuring children under 6) and the costumed Pony Hunt Teams held at the end of the afternoon in the Wheeler Ring.
Also, on the first Saturday, a jumping class featuring the best junior riders in the country takes the stage in the Dixon Oval, and the evening concludes with a Hunt Teams class, the Parent & Child class, and the Family class.
Ongoing Guided Back Barn Tours are available on the first Tuesday from 3:00 – 6:00 p.m. Registration is not required, and there is no charge for the tour.
Due to the large crowds, we do not recommend the evening Grand Prix as the best time to bring small children.
On the final Sunday, there will be special children’s crafts in the picnic grove along with the Itty Bitty Hat Parade where children can decorate their hats and parade the grounds.
