Foxwoods Resort Casino hosts the Budweiser Clydesdales
Internationally Beloved Budweiser Horses to Make Southeastern Connecticut Debut

Join the fun at Foxwoods® Resort Casino, the premier resort destination in the Northeast, where the iconic Anheuser-Busch Clydesdales, in conjunction with Levine Distributing Company, are scheduled to make their public Southeastern Connecticut appearance. 

That's right! The Budweiser Clydesdales will make their debut at the resort’s Grand Pequot Tower at 5:00pm on March 22nd, 2018

The one-of-a-kind experience will feature eight magnificent Clydesdale horses participating in a parade across property so Foxwoods guests can experience their grandeur like never before.

The Budweiser Clydesdales, the symbol of quality and tradition for Anheuser-Busch since 1933, will first appear outside of the Grand Pequot Tower at 5 p.m. to be unloaded, harnessed and hitched to the famous red beer wagon for the parade. 

An Anheuser-Busch Ambassador will be onsite to share the upkeep and hitching process that goes into caring for this special breed of horses in detail. Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation Chairman Rodney Butler and Foxwoods Resort Casino President and CEO Felix Rappaport will receive honorary horseshoes commemorating the rare visit.

“We are honored to host the legendary Budweiser Clydesdales at Foxwoods Resort Casino for their area debut, continuing our mission to offer unique experiences that reach beyond our guests’ expectations and imaginations,” said Monique Sebastian, Vice President of Entertainment and Entertainment Marketing at Foxwoods Resort Casino. “These beautiful horses are timeless symbols of American culture and beloved across the globe and this special event promises to be something Foxwoods’ guests will never forget.”

The Clydesdales’ appearance at Foxwoods is one of hundreds made annually by the traveling hitches, which were first brought to America in the mid-1800s. Horses chosen for the Budweiser Clydesdale hitch must be at least three years of age, stand approximately six feet at the shoulder, weigh an average of 2,000 pounds and have very specific color characteristics. The “Gentle Giants” each consume as much as 20-25 quarts of feed, 40-50 pounds of hay and 30 gallons of water per day.

This event is free and open to the public. The most convenient parking available for this event is the Grand Pequot Self-Park Garage located off Grand Pequot Boulevard. 

In the case of inclement weather, the Budweiser Clydesdales horses will be rigged and remain under the cover at the Rainmaker Casino valet for patron viewing.

About Budweiser

Budweiser, an American-style lager, was introduced in 1876 when company founder Adolphus Busch set out to create the United States' first truly national beer brand – brewed to be universally popular and transcend regional tastes. Each batch of Budweiser stays true to the same family recipe used by five generations of Busch family brewmasters. Budweiser is a medium-bodied, flavorful, crisp and pure beer with blended layers of premium American and European hop aromas, brewed for the perfect balance of flavor and refreshment. Budweiser is made using time-honored methods including "kraeusening" for natural carbonation and Beechwood aging, which results in unparalleled balance and character.
