Annual Benefit Moonlight Ride

Event Starts
Friday, Jul 26 2024

The Annual Benefit Moonlight Ride is located in Shipshewana, Indiana at the MEC. This event is always held the Last Friday of July, so make sure you mark your calendar! Twelve years strong, this show is worth watching with the Shipshewana community.

This event promises supper, teams of horses, trick riders (shooting balloons), and roping cows in front of 2000+ spectators. Plus, a certificate board (silent auction), giveaways, plenty of food, fun and memories. Ice cream, cotton candy, and smoothie vendors on site!

20+ outriders are outfitted with two-way radios and dispersed among the moonlight riders to make sure everyone stays safe and with the party. The riders are served breakfast when they return at 1am.

Event admission is by donation and open to the public.  Funds raised help local Shipshewana families, so grab your saddle and join the fun!
