A 10-day festival taking place between May 4-14th 2023. Including exciting and entertaining equine events showcasing the versatility of the horse and the important role they play within the Upper Hunter Valley region and around the world.
The theme for the much-anticipated 2024 Warburton Estate Agents Scone Horse Festival can now be announced, ‘Let the games begin!’, after an influx of exciting public submissions were received by the Festival committee and a common theme identified.
In a show of confidence for the Scone Horse Festival and the Upper Hunter Region, the festival has secured its first-ever naming rights sponsor in its 44-year history in Warburton Estate Agents, the region’s leading real estate agency. Having previously supported the festival as a Platinum Sponsor, this special new relationship will see Warburton’s involvement…
We’re proud to share that more than 10,000 people attended the festival, with thousands of visitors coming to our region to celebrate our tremendous equine industry. From a record-breaking crowd at the Warburton’s Street Parade, to fun filled days at various events, packed buses and sold-out tickets – 2023 was one to remember!
The Scone Arts and Crafts Members Exhibition is on once again – providing a wonderful array of artworks from local artists, perfect for a Mother’s Day gift. This year, thanks to our supporter Belltrees Pastoral, there are more than 200 stunning artwork entries on display!
The significant contributions and remarkable talents of equine enthusiasts were recognised last night, as the Young Achiever of the Year, Horse of the Year and 2023 VIP were announced during the official launch of the 43rd Scone Horse Festival at Arrowfield Stud.
It’s finally here! The Scone Horse Festival has officially begun, with a ‘Thank God for the Horse’ Thanksgiving service kicking off the festival tonight. With more than a week of exciting and entertaining equine events ahead, make sure you visit our website Program for all the latest event info.
All roads lead to Scone, NSW, with more than 10,000 people soon to descend on the historic town for the 43rd annual Scone Horse Festival. Local streets will close, schools will celebrate and travellers will come from far and wide as the festival takes over the town.
The parade route has been confirmed for the 2023 Warburton Horse Festival Parade! Due to proposed restrictions to one section of Kelly Street, the parade will take a different route from previous years. The parade will marshal at White Park for equine entries and along Guernsey Street and Kingdon Streets for non-equine entries.
