Minnesota Horse Expo 2021 Advance Ticket Sales to Begin
Advance Tickets for the 2021 Minnesota Horse Expo to be held July 23-25 at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds will go on sale by phone and online Thursday, April 15, 2021 at 9:00am CST.
Due to Covid-19 restrictions that are anticipated to still be in place at the time of the event, the 2021 Minnesota Horse Expo will operate under a restricted capacity and ticket availability may be limited. Although we hope that capacity limits will increase before the event, we must plan for these restrictions, so buy your tickets early while tickets are still available at the advance discount price! If capacity restrictions loosen by July, additional ticket availability may be added for advance and/or day-of purchases.
There will be no PRCA Rodeo as part of the 2021 MN Horse Expo. However, horse breed presentations, riding, driving and training demonstrations, plus vendors with products, services, and equipment for horses and their people, will continue to be the focus of the Minnesota Horse Expo.
Expo guests will be required to follow all COVID safety guidelines and procedures in place at the time of the event.
The Minnesota Horse Expo board of directors with the
sanction of the Minnesota Horse Council has voted to move the dates of
the 38 year old event for the first time from April at the MN State
July 23-25, 2021
the Fairgrounds due to concern about Covid-19 restrictions anticipated
to still be in place in early spring. This one time date shift to July
will hopefully allow time for the virus to be more under control and the
public to participate in a more weather favorable outdoor experience.
Horse breeds, riding and training demonstrations plus plenty of vendors
with products, services, equipment for horses and their owners will
continue to be the focus of the event. More information will be posted
here as we go forward with Horse Expo 2021 planning including ticket
sale dates, location layout, vendor and volunteer opportunities.
From Darrell Mead, President of the Minnesota Horse Expo, “The Horse Expo is a place where information, ideas, merchandise and community are shared. We need that.
So, we’re committed to making this Expo – changed as it may be – safely happen next July. For sure it will be different but we believe we can do this!.”
