The Kilkivan Great Horse Ride is an annual event,which is usually held close to the Easter weekend. It brings together horse back riders and horse drawn vehicles from all over Queensland and the southern states as far as South Australia. There are five trails to choose from, Widgee Hanging Rock Trail, Woolooga Old Coach Trail, Tansey Trail with the Carriage Trail and the Kilkivan Trail leaving from the Kilkivan Show Grounds. All riders meet up before coming into Kilkivan to allow them to assemble, prior to taking part in the Grand Parade up Kilkivan's main street, which is lined with Market Stores, they are then officially welcomed. Most riders camp at their starting points the night before where there is free live music and a BBQ. Following the Grand Parade the riders continue on to the Kilkivan Show Grounds to prepare for an evening of more entertainment and relaxation.
