Draft Horse Show
The first Britt Draft Horse Show was held on Labor Day weekend, 1982, at the Hancock County Fairgrounds just south of town. It was organized when a group of local draft horse enthusiasts felt there was a need for this type of performance in the area.
Each year the show features eighteen of the finest draft horse hitches in North America, representing the very best of the Belgian, Percheron, Clydesdale and Shire performance horses. This unique event draws thousands of spectators, young and old alike, from all over the Midwest.
