YOU’VE BEEN CHARGED WITH ORGANISING A MOMENTOUS OCCASION, THE ALL-IMPORTANT ‘LAST NIGHT OF FREEDOM’ AND THE OPTIONS ARE LIMITLESS SO MAKE A DAY OF IT AT THE RACES!
WHEN TO COME
Thirty-nine race fixtures take place across the year at the Home of Horseracing. The season kicks off in April at the Rowley Mile as we build up to the QIPCO Guineas Festival in May, which includes the first two classics of the Flat season. We then switch to the July Course for our summer season; picture a garden party atmosphere with a racetrack slicing through the middle: sunshine, champagne and breathtaking fashion.
As well as all of our iconic music nights, where we've hosted the likes of Kylie, George Ezra and Craig David, the summer season is home to the Moët & Chandon July Festival, where world class racing and beautiful fashion meet. We move back to the Rowley Mile in September for The Gold Season, highlights include The Cambridgeshire Meeting which features our annual beer festival and comedy evening. Dubai Future Champions Festival then arrives in October, witness future Guineas and Derby contenders announce themselves on the world stage whilst immersing yourself in a Dubai themed raceday. Our season then finishes in November, we are sure that we'll have a raceday perfect for your group!
Fancy dress is permitted at any time of the year in the Grandstand & Paddock Enclosure, we just request that it is not offensive.
