Recapturing the spirit of the 1890s, the Pittsford Carriage Association’s annual Carriage Driving Competition at Walnut Hill Farm will be celebrating its 46th anniversary this year! The five-day event runs from Wednesday, 8/9 through Sunday, 8/13 and hosts hundreds of international competitors in more than 100 classes and divisions; it is the largest pleasure driving competition in the country.

Spectators can enjoy special demonstrations, presentations, and antique horse-drawn vehicles from tiny pony carts to huge road coaches – with riders and horses alike “turned out” in style for the competition! Held in a 19th century country fair setting, the event features a range of competitions and special exhibits – the fancy dress competition, the carriage dog competition and the Victorian-style picnic are sure to be crowd favorites! Don’t miss the Wegman’s Ascot Picnic Night on Friday (8/11) – it’s a fun evening for the whole family!
