What is BreyerFest?

BreyerFest is Breyer Animal Creations' annual celebration of horses at the Kentucky Horse Park - a fabulous three-day family festival that combines the excitement of a horse fair with model horse activities!

For 29 years, BreyerFest has been bringing the model horse world to life with spectacular equine performances, the largest model horse shows in the country and the unique opportunity to meet the horses that inspire our models! Take part in the many workshops, free seminars, and Hands-On Hobby demos spanning all areas of the model horse hobby or shop ‘til you drop at The Marketplace, Artisans' Gallery, and Swap Meet!


Each year we select a very special guest to be our Celebration Horse, much like a homecoming king or queen. This year, BreyerFest guests will meet a stunning new version of Breyer's Walking Thoroughbred mold. Our Celebration Horse is Brass Hat, a multi-million dollar winning Thoroughbred gelding, owned by William "Buff" Bradley.

Admission to BreyerFest includes lots of FREE activities like Stablemates® painting, where you can create your own Breyer model in miniature, plus pony rides, a petting zoo, face painting, magic shows, and so much more! Have your picture taken with Pal O'Mine, the Breyer mascot, or with one of Pal's real horse friends at the stables.


BreyerFest is not just for kids either! Adults can enjoy live horse performances and demonstrations in the Covered Arena, opportunities to meet and greet our guest horses and their owners, try their hand at creating their own Breyer Stablemates® model, explore the Kentucky Horse Park, attend fascinating seminars on horses and Breyer model horse collecting, take part in workshops, visit the vendors in our Marketplace, shop for BreyerFest souvenirs, and more!

Don't forget to leave plenty of time to explore the greatest horse park in America! The magnificent Kentucky Horse Park has so much to see and do and it's all included in your ticket!
