The Walnut Hill Farm Driving Competition is the world's largest horse-drawn carriage competition of its kind. This year, the five day event will celebrate the competition's 44th anniversary with 100 competitive classes, spectator events, and demonstrations. Past festivals have drawn thousands of spectators checking out the different coaches and competitions. This year's competition will feature demonstrations from a Belgian Six-Horse Hitch, the all-female Western New York polo club, and a country western barbecue for a competitor meet-and-greet.
The Walnut Hill Carriage Driving Competition will take place Wednesday, August 5, through Sunday, August 9, beginning each day at 8 a.m. Admission is $10 per day, $5 for children under 12. The competition will be held at 397 West Bloomfield Road, Pittsford. For more information, visit walnuthillfarm.org.
