BreyerFest brings over 30,000 visitors to the Kentucky Horse Park each year! Since Breyer models are made for both playing and collecting, our guests range from avid lifelong collectors to younger collectors to families who just happen to be in Lexington in July!
To cater to our youngest fans, a number of activities are planned specifically with them in mind. There is a lot going on for the whole family as well – take a look at the list below!
FREE Pony Rides
After being surrounded by model horses, watching special equine performances, and meeting Breyer's iconic portrait models up close, if there's one thing kids will want to do, it's ride a horse! Free pony rides will be happening in Celebration Park all weekend long!
The petting zoo is not to be missed! Adorable animals will charm kids of all ages and kids at heart!
Back again! You can find the carousel out in Celebration Park near the dining tent. Free for all guests to ride, choose your magical steed and hang on!
FREE Face Painting, Hula Hooping, Jugglers!
Circus performers in Celebration Park will be entertaining guests of all ages. Learn to hula hoop and juggle (even enter our hooping and juggling contests!), have your face painted, play games, and watch the aerialist defy gravity on the silks! Hula hoopers, jugglers, and stilt walkers will also be roaming around the park to wow BreyerFest attendees young and old!
Civil War Re-enactors!
History comes to life in Celebration Park! Learn more about the history of horses in the American military. See replicas of antique saddles, gear, and tents up close! There’s even the chance to try reproduction uniforms for yourselves! You can read more about Mark Farrar and his troop of Re-enactors on the Breyer Blog here.
