Genesee Valley Hunt Parade and Opening Meet @ The Wadsworth Homestead and Main Street
Sep 25 @ 7:30 am – 9:00 am

GVHThe Opening Meet marks the beginning of the formal foxhunting season. Hounds, staff and subscribers traditionally ride up Geneseo’s Main Street at 7:30 AM from the Wadsworth Homestead to the Hartford House at the north end, and off into the countryside from there. The sight of so many riders of all ages and sound of so many hooves on the pavement are stirring. (Valley Horses by Sally Fox, Livingston County News, September 18, 2014)

This is the 145rd season of the Genesee Valley Hunt.

Genesee Valley Hunt Races @ Race Grounds

stevensprint2007We’ve got our eyes on October 9, 2021 and we’re really hoping to SEE YOU THERE! Planning has started…so pencil it into your calendar for the 2nd Saturday in October!

The Genesee Valley Hunt Races and Fall Festival is a great way for the entire family to spend the day in a beautiful outdoor setting just north of Geneseo, NY. The Hunt Races have been hosted here for over 120 years, and some of the finest steeplechase trainers on the eastern seaboard bring their horses here to race in this pastoral setting.
But the Hunt Races and Fall Festival isn’t just about horses—it’s about dogs and canine events, too. There are Terrier and wiener dog races, a jumping contest, agility courses, sled dog demos, and of course the Parade of the Genesee Valley Hunt foxhounds. Leashed dogs are more than welcome to attend the event, and some people say that dog-watching is just as much fun as watching the horses!
There’s lots for the kids to do (including stick horse races and pony rides), food and drink vendors, wine and craft beer tasting, shopping, music and more. It’s like an old-fashioned country fair with a race track instead of a midway, and there’s something for everyone to enjoy!
