Celebration makes plans for Spring Fun Show; Announces Judges

The 54th Annual Spring Fun Show will be held May 23-25, 2024, in Cooper Steel Arena on the historic show grounds of the Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration. Judging the Spring Fun Show will be Jamie Bradshaw, Mike Hilley and Dickie Scrivner.

Bradshaw has been a regular at Celebration events having marked the cards at The Celebration six times.  His most recent assignment was in 2022.  Bradshaw also judged the Spring Fun Show in 2022 and has judged most every major show in the industry during his career.

Hilley will be judging the Spring Fun Show for the first time however he has also previously judged The Celebration.  Hilley marked the cards at The Celebration in 2018 and 2020.  Hilley has been in center ring at some major venues since his last Celebration role.  He has judged the National Trainers’ Show, Pulaski, Columbia Spring Jubilee and Money Tree among others since 2020.

Scrivner will be considered the rookie of the panel as he will be the only one that has not previously judged The Celebration.  But Scrivner is no rookie and has worked for The Celebration previously at the 2020 Spring Fun Show.  His resume includes judging the National Trainers’ Show, North Carolina Championships, Columbia Spring Jubilee and Alabama Jubilee.

The Spring Fun Show will feature 72 classes across the three evening performances with an addition of two crowd favorite Pick Your Partner classes to help raise money for the legal fun.  Each performance starts at 6:00PM, and the class sheet can be found here

The Celebration will also have a sponsor party in center ring of Celebration Arena on Wednesday night.  Information on sponsorship opportunities can be found here. For more information visit www.TWHNC.com or call The Celebration office at 931-684-5915
