12th Annual Horse World Expo to be Held in Harrisburg, PA February 27-March 2
Horse World Expo returns to Harrisburg, PA’s Farm Show Complex February 27-March 2 for four days of education, entertainment and shopping – all focused on horses and the people who love them. The twelfth annual Pennsylvania Horse World Expo will feature the nation’s leading equestrian clinicians and entertainers, and over 500 booths in more than 180,000 square feet of exhibit space with an overwhelming selection of horse related merchandise for browsing and buying.
Theatre Equus, A Musical Equine Revue, a professionally choreographed and scripted show in which humans and horses partner to perform remarkable feats of daring and beauty, will be held the evenings of February 28 and March 1 in conjunction with the Expo. Geared to all ages, Theatre Equus is an evening of family entertainment starring horses — part circus, part Wild West show, part equestrian ballet. Performances by about thirty of the country’s most highly trained horses are accompanied by music, enhanced lighting and narration.
Horse World Expo tickets are $12, $6 for ages 6-12, and are available at HorseWorldExpo.com. Theatre Equus tickets are $14-$26. Horse World Expo hours are: Thursday, February 27, noon to 8 pm; Friday, February 28, 10 am – 8 pm; Saturday, March 1, 9 am – 8 pm; Sunday, March 2, 9 am – 5 pm.
