Have you heard that the Budweiser Clydesdale Horses will be at Fall for Greenville? Here’s how you can see them at the festival during the second weekend of October, 2021 in Greenville, SC.

There’s something iconic and just beautiful about the Budweiser Clydesdale horses. They are majestic and regal and everyone loves them.

And they will be at Fall for Greenville the second weekend in October! The eight horses hitched to the iconic red wagon have been a symbol of Anheuser-Busch since 1933. They visited Greenville back in November of 2018 to much fanfare.

If you’re not familiar with Fall for Greenville, it is one of the best festivals all year and focused on the delicious cuisine in the Upstate. There are booths all down Main Street where you can sample all kinds of food plus a kids entertainment area.

Where to see them

  • Friday, October 8: 4 pm – 9 pm
  • Saturday, October 9: 1 pm – 8 pm

Cool facts about the horses

The horses hitched to the wagon have a series of requirements they must meet. They must:

  • Be at least three years old
  • Be six feet tall at the shoulder
  • Weigh around 2,000 pounds
  • Have all their legs be white, their mane and tail black, and have a blaze of white on their face

Have you ever noticed the Dalmatian dog that travels with the horses? Back in 1933, the dogs were bred and trained for the purpose of traveling with the horses, guarding the wagon, and protecting the animals while the driver delivered the beer around town. The Dalmatian still travels with the wagon and horses today.

And let’s talk about food – they will at Fall for Greenville after all. One Clydesdale horse eats at much as 25 quarts of feed, 50 pounds of day, and up to 30 gallons of water each day. Families with teenage boys can probably relate.
