Experience an exhilarating tradition unlike any other – The Steeplechase at Callaway Resort & Gardens.



Each November, magnificent champion thoroughbred horses gather on the Callaway grounds to charge through our stunning woodland setting. Thrilling jumps and deft maneuvers will leave you breathless, while the foxhound parade and Jack Russell Terrier race will put a smile on your face.

This year the fun kicks-off Friday night with our event, A Southern Living Gathering.  Join us the night before Race Day at the Virginia Hand Discovery Center as we celebrate all the best BBQ & Bourbon the South has to offer with the Editor in Chief of Southern Living, Sid Evans.

On Saturday, savor a picnic on the infield, show off a traditional race hat, and soak in the festive hunt club atmosphere. With pony rides, stick pony races, a kids’ corral, and food and drink specials, it’s a lively event for family and friends of all ages.
