If you’re in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area – it’s pretty hard to not be curious about Cavalia.  My husband and I started seeing the billboards all over the place around Labor Day – and wondered… What *IS* Cavalia?  When is it?  The billboards pretty much leave it all up for you to do the research.


Cavalia is a show – A French equestrian and performing arts show.  And it is really. cool. to see.

Cavalia is a fresh mix of equestrian and performing arts, multimedia and special effects. Conceived by Normand Latourelle and often labeled an equestrian ballet, Cavalia is a spectacular and moving tribute to the relationship between men and horses throughout history, a dream of freedom, cooperation and harmony. In a fairy tale setting filled with poetry and emotion, the show innovatively integrates acrobatics, dance, aerial stunts, live music and equestrian arts. Under the largest Big Top on earth, a 50-meter stage permits the horses to express themselves in all their splendor, nobility and strength, often completely free.


There are only a few Cavalia Performances in Minneapolis left!  October 30th is their last performance here, and then they’re moving on to Portland, Oregon.


I managed to nab a few tickets for my husband and I – and we went last night.  We had a great time, and really enjoyed the performances.  They’re so unique and different than what you might expect!  The horses are amazing – and the things the trainers are able to do with them is spectacular!


But Guess. What.?

I ALSO am able to give two tickets away!!

The Giveaway Tickets are for next Thursday, October 27th at 8pm.  Seats TBD.

    Thanks for doing the research! I’d actually give them to my mom to go with her friend to see the show. I saw the billboards all over Minneapolis when I went back to see the family over Labor Day weekend and wondered what it was all about. Glad to hear they will be coming out here to the West Coast next – maybe I can catch them when they are in town!

Not only is she an awesome wife and mother, but 3 years ago, my 8 month old puppy broke her neck and had to have a very expensive surgery and follow up (she is very healthy and happy now… Surgery went perfect!). To help with the cost, Jen organized a benefit for Juno, a costume party, prizes to be raffled, and raised about $1300 to go towards Juno’s medical bills. I have never had the opportunity to “pay” Jen back for all she has done, and winning these tickets, to give to her, would be so appreciated 🙂 PS, if I could post a picture of my happy “miracle” puppy, I would 🙂

  37. Lolu Allison says:

    Since I’m in California, I would gift it to my parents. My mom is a recent cancer survivor and in July just had double knee replacement. My father has been her absolute rock and hasn’t had the time to go out and do something great with his wife. Money is a lil tight and I know they would appreciate it a lot. She loves shows and I know she will simply adore those horses. Fingers crossed!

  38. If I won, I would take my friend Jen. She has been so helpful and supportive to me during some pretty significant postpartum mood disorder issues. Money is really tight for us right now and this would be a good chance for me to say thank you to her.

  39. definitely, I’d take my hubby!!

  40. If I won, I would take my friend Jen Jamar. She has always been such a caring and giving person, whether it is for a friend, family member, or animal. She is an awesome mom to both her son Levi, and all her furbabies. I would love to “pay it forward.”

  41. My Lovely Wife and mother of my beautiful children.

  42. I would definitely take Jen Jamar. Not only did she throw an AMAZING benefit for my best friends dog who had a broken neck (see above), but also, she’d bake me cookies 🙂

  43. JEN JAMAR!!! Amazing person, amazing blog. Nuf said.

  44. Jen Jamar! Not only is her blog inspiring, but she loves dogs, AND will bake me cookies!!!

  45. Heather Van Horn says:

    I would either take my 11 year old daughter or my 51 year old mother, both have been working hard at what they do and deserve a fun break.

  46. Obviously Jen Jamar…. She’ll bake me cookies. Maybe twice.

  47. Jen Jamar. She threw a wonderful fundraiser for my daughters puppy and this would be a great thank you!!!!

  48. Jen Jamar!!

  49. Jen Jamar! I won’t even make her bake me cookies!!

  51. Jen Jamar for sure! She has helped my sistr with her dog sooo much, she deserves it!

  55. Definitely Jen Jamar! The fundraiser she threw for my sisters puppy was incredible. And she did it out of the kindness of her heart!

  56. After the benefit Jen Jamr threw for my step daughters dog, Juno, that shows what a giving person she is. They were merely acquaintances when Jen put a beautiful fundraiser together. She deserves these tickets. What an amazing woman!
