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, a six horse hitch, trick riders shooting balloons and roping cows in front of 1500+ spectators. 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 by donation and open to the public. 2023 funds raised are helping local Shipshewana families. Grab your saddle and join the fun!
