Saturday Night Lights
Spectators are welcome at PBIEC from Wednesday through Sunday, but the feature event of the week is Saturday Night Lights! In 2022, the WEF season will take place from January 5 – April 3.
Saturday Night Lights is a Grand Prix equestrian event featuring food, fun, live music, and the highest level of competitive show jumping at Palm Beach International Equestrian Center on Saturday evenings during the Winter Equestrian Festival, January through early April.
Saturday Night Lights is family-friendly! Each week visitors can expect a live band, face painting, games, pony rides, petting zoo, magician, and stilt walkers, all for free!
If you’ve never been to a horse show before, we recommend visiting our Horse Show 101 page to learn more about the competition you’ll be watching!
General admission is free! Just pay $20 per car for parking.

Please note that many of the food vendors surrounding the International Arene are cashless, meaning you will need a credit or debit card to purchase food. No cards on you? No problem! “Reverse ATMs” will be set up at the Tiki Hut & The Central Park Bar for convenience. To use one, insert cash into the machine (Min $10 transaction), and a VISA debit gift card will be issued for the same amount. There is no fee to use this service. The card you receive is not specific to PBIEC and can be used anywhere that VISA cards are accepted.
