20 Photos of the Most Memorable Radnor Hunt Race Fashions and Hats

20 Photos of the Most Memorable Radnor Hunt Race Fashions and Hats

The Radnor Hunt Races celebrated its 87th Anniversary on May 20, 2017. Thousands of guests were on hand to watch seven races, including the Preakness which was shown on TV screens high above the ground, after 6 Radnor Races concluded. Despite the gloomy weather, most guests dressed in their derby finest, although I did see a few ho hum dull colors dotting the landscape this year which was surprising; attendees enjoyed parading the grounds while party hoping from tent to tent, or enjoying  the races at tailgate parties, in sponsor tents or by pulling up a chair along the fence. All proceeds from the Radnor Hunt Races benefit the land and water preservation programs of theConservancy | Brandywine Conservancy and Museum of Art in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania.

Happy Memorial Day. Thank you to all the service people who have fought for our freedom, and who continue to fight for democracy. The Devon Horse Show Week officially began on last Wednesday, May 25, 2016 as guests gathered on the Devon grounds for First Night, the next night there was a Ribbon Cutting. The annual event not only opens the show, but also gives guests a sneak preview of the artwork on display and for sale in the Art Gallery at Devon.

Some days have a short break for dinner.  Gates will open daily at approximately 8:00 a.m. and close at approximately 10:00 p.m. each day.  The Country Fair area opens about 10:00 a.m. for the Midway and Shopping.  The first Sunday, the gates will open at 11:00 a.m. and the Horse Show classes will start at 12:00 p.m.

Coming up June 1st I’ll be attending the The Hat Contest and Ladies Luncheon at The Devon Horse Show. Carson Kressley, and Adam Joseph.

Founded in 1896, it is one of the most prestigious equestrian events in  the country and one of the largest volunteer fundraising efforts in the nation as well. The ong oing commitment to Bryn Mawr Hospital is extremely important to both  the leadership and  the  over  two thousand  of volunteers at the Devon Horse Show and Country Fair. Since 1972, the Devon  Country Fair has donated nearly $20 million to Bryn Mawr,  to support projects such as the  Emergency Department, the Comprehensive Breast Center, Maternal – Fetal Medicine program,  the Outpatient Diagnostic Center, and various other improvement programs

Thanks to PhillyChitChat’s Mike Hirata for shooting this important event. Check out his pixs of Brent Celek’s new eatery Bop, and the VIP Friends and Family Opening Party at Metro Philly
