One of the most popular fall events, the Country Festival presented by Infiniti Stuart at the Equine Rescue and Adoption Foundation (ERAF) in Palm City, will be held on Sunday, October 20 from 12 to 4 pm.
This is fourth year for the family friendly event that truly has something for everyone. Admission is a $3 donation and children six and under are free. All the funds raised support the care, feeding and health needs of our herd of rescued horses.
Halloween is just around the corner so the kids are encouraged to dress up and trick or treat with our vendors. Please bring a bag to collect candy in.
ERAF is located at 6400 SW Martin Highway in Palm City and is home to approximately 40 rescued horses including yearlings, mares, geldings and mini-horses. Wear your jeans and closed toed shoes and you’ll enjoy strolling around the property and seeing the sights.
There is a mini-horse kissing booth for great photo opportunities. Be sure to save time for a guided barn tour and learn all about the inner workings of this unique horse rescue founded in 2000. You will also learn about our volunteer opportunities and how you can become a member and support this lifesaving organization.
A country festival wouldn’t be complete without pony rides. Be sure to sign up for a ride offered by Happy Place Party Ponies. Pony rides are five dollars.
Get creative with the mini-pumpkins will be available for sale and decorating ($2). There will also be tickets for sale for a 50/50 raffle. You’ll also be able to meet our horses that are ready for adoption. We have some beauties, so if you’ve been thinking about getting a horse, this is a great opportunity. There will be horse demonstrations in the main arena where our trainers will put our well-trained horses through their paces.
After the horse demonstrations, kids will enjoy a variety of fun games in the arena including stick pony races. The Cactus Moon Dance group will entertain everyone with their dance demonstrations. Enjoy the tunes of the 33 Years Band while you enjoy a bite to eat from our food trucks including Dune Dog Café and Tradition Pizza Company. Enjoy a frosty beverage from The Crafted Keg Mobile or a homemade lemonade from Concession Depot.
Infiniti Stuart will have cars on display and will be glad to show you the latest models.
