In May 1896, residents along the Philadelphia Main Line organized a meeting on the lawn of the Devon Inn inviting friends and neighbors to "effect an organization for the purpose of holding a Horse Show at Devon." In the aftermath of World War I, the Devon Horse Show incorporated a country fair in 1919 to support a local charity and selected Bryn Mawr Hospital as its beneficiary. Devon Horse Show and Country Fair follows the organization from its humble beginnings as a one-day show for local breeding farmers in the Philadelphia countryside to its rise as a premier international equestrian event. While it draws top competitors from around the world, the Devon Horse Show and Country Fair remains uniquely rooted in tradition and community. More than 2,500 volunteers return year after year, generation after generation, to ensure its success for the benefit of Bryn Mawr Hospital.
