The Steeplechase at Callaway Gardens, known as the “event of the season”, brings family and friends together to watch thoroughbred horses race over timber and brush hurdles.
Tailgating together, either in tents, box seats, or the infield, guests select their favorite horse in each of the five sanctioned races and cheer them to the finish; they entertain their children with Stick Pony races, pony rides, Jack Russell Terrier races, face painting and more in the Kids Corral. There are also two junior horse races for selected competitive riders sixteen years old and younger. You can enjoy bagpipers and blacksmiths, as well as the parade of the Midland Foxhounds, and the BMW of Columbus Hat Contest. Visit the Coors Light Infield Pavilion for live music, college football on the Jumbotron, Infield Pavilion Bar and food sales from Country’s BBQ and 219 on the Road! You’ll have a premium view of the races from the Coors Light Infield Pavilion viewing area along the back stretch. The day includes a variety of entertainment for all ages.
