The Scone Equine Hospital Horse Festival Parade 2017

The Scone Horse Festival is a unique event that takes place in beautiful Scone and the surrounding Upper Hunter Valley each year in May. The festival includes remarkable events that showcase the versatility of the horse and the important role they play in the local area.

The Festival will take place from 4-14th May and the theme for 2017 is 'May the Horse be with you'; expect to be moved from this world in an amazing 11-day festival in Scone and the Upper Hunter.

The Scone Equine Hospital Horse Festival Parade 

is one of the most striking demonstrations of the kindred of horse and man. This year's Festival Parade takes place on Saturday 6th May and starts at approximately 10.30am. Headed by veteran horsemen and participants, such as marching bands, local schools, equestrian clubs and horses of all breeds, the Parade is a truly remarkable showcase for the Upper Hunter horse world: a great family spectacle that fills the main street of Scone.

Horse Parade Route

The parade starts on the corner of Guernsey and Liverpool Streets. It will turn right from Guernsey Street into Liverpool Street and continue to the traffic lights on Liverpool and Kelly Streets. At the traffic lights, the parade turns left onto Kelly Street. It proceeds down to St Aubins intersection where the parade does a u-turn at The Royal Hotel. Then it proceeds down Kelly Street to the Kingdon Street intersection located near the Thoroughbred Hotel, where it does a u-turn and moves back down to the traffic lights. The parade concludes with one final turn left at the Post Office onto Liverpool Street, and returns to the marshalling area. Commentators are located at a number of positions on the Parade route announcing each of the participants.
