Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show begins 11-day run

Posted

The events keep coming to the Valley with the start of the Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show.

The event will take place through Sunday, Feb. 26, at WestWorld of Scottsdale. 

An estimated 300,000 attend the show annually, event organizers said.

Competitions and displays of hundreds of Arabian horses are the focus of the 11-day event, but it also features gala parties, equestrian education seminars, an international cuisine court and more than 250 vendor booths, according to a release.

That combination attracts visitors to the area from around the world.

A 2020 report from CH Johnson Consulting showed 48% of those attending are from out of state, and 3.4% are from outside the United States.

More than 10% of attendees have incomes exceeding $250,000 a year, according to the report.

“The Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show and its related events have been a consistent revenue generator for the City of Scottsdale contributing to the local economy and the city’s tax base,” Executive Director Taryl O’Shea said.

“And unlike the Super Bowl which comes to Arizona every decade or so, the Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show is every year.”
