Centennial Farms is absolutely delighted to be involved in the first ever Equestricon. Equestricon, the brainchild of Kathryn Sharp, Justin Nicholson, and Dan Tordjman, is a racing convention like no other. It is a fan festival and trade show that will bring together industry insiders, fans, horseplayers, and more for panels, discussions, meet and greets, entertainment, and a host of other activities. As proud sponsors of the event, you will be able to interact with us in a variety of ways.

Find Juba!
If you follow Centennial Farms on Twitter, undoubtedly you’ve seen Juba‘s costume ideas to try to sneak past security (we’ve heard they’re not zoned for horses) and attend Equestricon. We’ll be hiding ten of our favorite costumed Jubas throughout the convention area. If you find one, snap a picture of it or take a selfie, use the hashtag #IfoundJubaatEQCon17, and be eligible to win a prize!

Members of Centennial Farm will also be roaming Equestricon – please feel free to approach us any time!
