Taylor Horsefest

Founded to honor the animal that played such a major part in Taylor, North Dakota’s heritage, this twenty five year-old event takes a step back in time with a non-motorized parade, crafts and food vendors, exhibitors, children’s activities, and music. Taylor HorseFest is held on the last weekend in July. Proceeds from the event go toward land improvements and community projects.
