Harvest Fest on the weekend of Oct 31-Nov 2.

You are invited to join your barn friends at Harvest Fest on John's Island. The main event is Saturday, Nov 1, and you will find bands, food trucks, games for the kids and much more at the Mullet Hall Equestrian Center.  We encourage families with children to join the fun on Saturday, horses or no horses.

Some adult riders will be taking horses and camping on Friday night, some will be coming on Saturday with children, others will just be stopping by for the day on Saturday, and still others will be staying the whole weekend.  Here is the overall schedule.

  • Friday night:  Adult rider night. Folks will be arrive throughout the day. Bring something to put on the grill and a side to share - and, of course, your favorite adult beverage.  We will do a late afternoon ride, and then cook out. Riders are bringing their own trailers or arranging private transportation for horses. Bring breakfast snacks. If you want to stay the weekend, it's $50 per rider, and $20 per person for Saturday night dinner and Sunday breakfast.  You can get more information and make reservations on their website.  
  • Saturday:  Family time! This is the day of the Harvest Festival.  Come on down and enjoy some
    foot-stompin’ live music from five local bluegrass bands. There is plenty to keep the kiddies occupied including hay rides, a stick pony corral, pumpkin decorating, penny diving, lasso demonstrations, crafts and more. Feast on Southern delights like finger-lickin’ Carolina barbeque, kettle korn, and all of your favorite festival foods! Plus, there will be icy-cold beverages available for purchase. Once you’ve eaten your fill, head on over to the crafters market - great for holiday shopping.  Everyone will be eating lunch at the food truck, so bring money to spend!  All children must be supervised by parents or guardians. There will be a morning and an afternoon ride. You can get more information on their website.  
    • Hours and Admission 11:00am - 5:00pm. $8 per person. Kids 12 and under and Gold Pass Members are free!
