The 117th annual Devon Horse Show is ripe with tradition and a tremendous fashion culture!
And one of the most highly anticipated events each year is the fabulous Ladies Day at Devon returning Wednesday, May 29th.
The festivities begin with the annual Devon Hat Contest.
Lovely ladies can register at the Pavilion starting at 10 a.m., followed by a stroll along the promenade route passing the judges. Local celebrities will be on hand to judge-including Carson Kressley.
Following the Hat Contest is the popular Ladies Day Tea at the Devon Club—where champagne and tea sandwiches will be served.
Tickets for the tea can be purchased online for $75 per person. Be sure to list the name(s) of all guests included in the ticket order on PayPal in the comment section.
Proceeds benefit Bryn Mawr Hospital.
Ladies in hats enter the horse show grounds for free until 1pm on Wednesday, May 29th as part of Ladies Day at Devon.
