Chilhowee Fair Jackpot

Barrel racers we hope that you will join us for the very first Chilhowee Fair Open 4D Barrel Jackpot. Anyone and everyone is welcome to compete. The open will have $1,000 added, we hope to make this an annual event that will grow in the years to come. This is a large outdoor arena. We are going to attempt to set a standard pattern, not promising that but we are going to try.

First and foremost, this is a fair event. There will be spectators, a carnival, and a live band. Expect a little more action than your normal barrel jackpot. The carnival will be set up just outside of the arena. If you have a sensitive horse or maybe one that has not been hauled and seasoned, you may want to come early to ride around. The late session will also have a live band playing near the arena. Let's just say this will be more of a rodeo atmosphere. Just be prepared. 

Parking: The parking will be very limited. We are going to do our very best to make sure we have enough room for the parking. This arena is located right in the middle of Chilowee. There will be designated trailer parking in front of the Chilhowee City Hall. However, if that fills you can park anywhere you see fit and ride to the arena. Main street in town will be shut down for the Carnival so please do not try to come down main street with your trailer. I feel confident that all of you barrel racers can make your own decision on where to park your trailer. 

You may also park near the city park and ride your horse to the arena... It's not that far! Whatever is the best situation for you. This is a very very small town. Just park and do the best you can do. Just avoid Main Street or you may get stuck.

The race will be split into TWO sessions. The early session will be PRE-ENTRY ONLY! The early session will also be limited. We will have an hour break between the sessions. The arena will not be open during the break as they will have specialty acts in the arena between sessions.

Warm Up: You may ride over to the city park and warm your horses up in the park. We will have open arena before each session for warm up time as well. Please feel free to use the city park to warm up if needed or use the designated open arena prior to the race starting.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Michelle Hamilton (660)864-3200.

If weather is questionable, call or text before you haul.
