Haflinger StallionThe Columbus Carriage Festival is June 18-19, 2016 in picturesque  Fireman’s Park, in Columbus Wisconsin.  This show is one of the largest horse and carriage pleasure driving shows in the United States and features competitors from all over the Midwest.

Come and enjoy the variety of turnouts from miniatures to drafts horses, put to elegant antique carriages as well as sleek modern day vehicles.

Competitors will enter one of eight different divisions to compete for Championship prizes over the weekend. Vendors will be on hand as well as Olivet Church and the Columbus Legion, selling tempting treats and sumptuous  burgers.  Proceeds from the Festival will go to benefit the construction of a handicap accessible elevator in the park pavilion. To date the Festival has donated more than $20,000 in cash and architectural services to benefit this community project.
