First-class competition sport – that is what has distinguished the CHIO Aachen for years. The World Equestrian Festival wouldn’t be what it is without its special kinship to the sport, gripping emotions and the unique flair. Hundreds of thousands of visitors come to the Soers year after year, because they share a passion – and want to spend an unforgettable time here.  So, the supporting programme is a significant part of the event. A thrilling show programme is integrated into the 10 days of top-class equestrian sport, which offers diversity and goose bump moments. The CHIO Aachen is more than an equestrian show!

Opening Ceremony

Opening Ceremony 2018

The official Opening Ceremony of the CHIO Aachen 2018 on Tuesday, July 17th (Main Stadium) is the first colourful highlight of the event. After the huge success of the Opening Ceremony last year, the Opening Ceremony of the CHIO Aachen 2018 is also going to be a spectacular evening event. This year the country theme is China, a country that stands for a long circus tradition.

In addition to the artists from the national circus, a colourful, magnificent and spectacular show awaits the visitors. The lion and dragon dance is inseparably associated with the Chinese culture. A very spectacular show act is “Manao – Drums of China”: The 12 young ladies already opened the Olympic Games in Peking with their tremendous drums.
