Saturday & Sunday, November 18 & 19, 2017

The Fall Family Festival production is spearheaded this year by Jaqui De Meric and Stephanie Brennan, both part of husband-wife top Ocala-based consignor teams of Thoroughbreds. The Ocala Farm Ministry, Chaplain Bob and their volunteers will be hosting a variety of family activities to enhance the already action-packed 3-Day event. The activities will include horse themed games, scavenger hunt and  other games and prizes. The family festival is an extension of the efforts by the Ministry to help provide physical, emotional and spiritual growth to the horse farm workers and their families across the county. The Ocala Farm Ministry is a local division of the Racetrack Chaplaincy. On a regular basis they provide the assistance needed to help make a difference to others. Family activities will be there to enjoy throughout the weekend, with some of the main games being set for Sunday November 19th, the Family Focus Day of the Ocala Jockey Club International 3-Day Event.
