This event is kid-friendly with face painting, a petting zoo, a photo booth, and the popular mechanical bull for the older kids and folks. The evening will have alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, a barbecue buffet, a live auction, raffle drawings, a show featuring an equestrian program participant, live music, and line dancing with caller.

Prior to COVID, the NAC’s equestrian program saw over 7,000 participants of all abilities and skill levels.

The fundraiser benefits the NAC’s equestrian program by aiding its generous scholarship fund for participants and housing, feeding, and caring for the horses. Each year the NAC spends $205,000 to care for their horses. The Barn Party also celebrates staff, volunteers, participants, and families learning “I Can,” when perhaps they were told they couldn’t.
