The Blowing Rock Charity Horse Show is a time-honored tradition in this town. Dating back to 1923, it is one of the oldest continuously running horse shows in the country.

Fast forward to 2018 — This year's Kentucky Derby will be on Cinco de Mayo (May 5th) and Corona has announced that they will be the presenting sponsor of the event! Here in Blowing Rock, we are hosting our own mini-Derby celebration with Corona as the lead sponsor. We hope you'll enjoy us for a night of fun as we celebrate this great legacy.
