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.

Please visit the ticket page on the Minnesota Horse Expo website for more information:



 Let's try July!

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 Fairgrounds to

July 23-25, 2021

at 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!.”
