The  Arizona EquiFest   will be held
September   19th, 20th, 21st   2014
12th annual Equifest !!
              What is Olsen's Grain - Arizona EquiFest ? 
    So, there's been all this buzz about "Equifest". But what is it exactly? 
	
    The 11th annual Arizona EquiFest, which features the largest tack swap in 
   northern Arizona and more than 50 vendors showing and/or selling farm 
   animal-related products, kicks off Friday, September 20th at the 
   Prescott Rodeo Grounds.

    Olsen's Grain and Purina Mills will once again sponsor this FREE event!

    EquiFest offers everything from horse- and sheep-herding demonstrations to a 
   trailer race and police dog demo.

    There are activities in the Main Arena, the Clinicians Arena, the 
   Indoor Education Center, the Outdoor Education Center, and of course the tack swap
   in the Mackin Building.

    All-day activities include dutch oven cooking demonstrations, antique tractor 
   displays and a tractor pull, and How to Start Your Dog on Cattle. 
   
    Children will have the chance to build a stick horse, participate in a 
   stick horse race, take a barrel train ride and attend a petting zoo. 
   There will also be dummy roping.

    Dan Olsen, one of EquiFest's organizers, said his family started the gathering 
   several years ago as a way to "give something back to the community at large."
   We expect anywhere from 4,000 to 5,000 people to attend.

    EquiFest is here to give back and inform people about the 'latest and greatest' 
   of how to take care of animals.

    Vendor booths (crafts, clothing, jewelry, food and supplies), shopping and 
   concessions will be available throughout the event, while the tack swap runs 
   from 9 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
   During the swap, folks market their tack, display it and sell it, with proceeds 
   going back to the seller.
   
    A barrel race and pole-bending jackpot wrap up the day's activities at 4:15 p.m.

    Live activities in the Clinicians Arena focus on demonstrating instructional
   information about horses in an educational setting.

    The Main Arena also will have demos, but those will center more on an 
   entertainment element.
   
    A police dog demonstration inside that arena will showcase how police dogs from 
   Yavapai County Sheriff's Office, Prescott police and Prescott Valley police, 
   among other area law enforcement agencies, are used to protect the community.
