Express Clydesdales

Friday, October 7, 2016 - Monday, October 10, 2016

Express Clydesdales

The world-renowned Express Clydesdales, most famous for escorting William and Kate, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, during their last visit to Canada, will trot their way through the Brigden Fair this year.

The Clydesdales were named World Champions at the Calgary Stampede, and have been seen in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, Rose Bowl, and Kentucky Derby.

Standing at 17-18 hands high and weighing in at over 2,000 pounds each, the horses will be showcased throughout the weekend at the fairground horse barns. Their weekend schedule is as follows:

  • Friday, October 7
    • Barns open: 9:00am
    • Parading the fairgrounds: 11:00am (Heavy Horse Ring)
    • Photo ops: 2:00pm-4:00pm
  • Saturday, October 8
    • Barns open: 9:00am
    • Parading the fairgrounds: 11:00am (Heavy Horse Ring)
    • Brigden Fair Parade: noon
    • Photo ops: 2:00pm-4:00pm
  • Sunday, October 9
    • Barns open: 9:00am
    • Parading the fairgrounds: 11:00am (Heavy Horse Ring)
    • Photo ops: 2:00pm-4:00pm
  • Monday, October 10
    • Barns open: 9:00am
    • Photo ops: 2:00pm-4:00pm

Express, a national sponsor of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, will take this opportunity to raise money for the local organization, Harmony for Youth.

The Clydesdales will be on display to the public throughout the four-day event, and Express will be accepting voluntary donations for Harmony in exchange for the chance to get up close with the horses, take advantage of photo ops, and ride in the Express wagon as the horses parade the fairgrounds. Raffle tickets will also be sold for a chance to win a Clydesdales swag bag
