New Zealand's biggest Melbourne Cup party is returning to Ellerslie.
For the thousands of people that descend onto Ellerslie Racecourse for Jarden Melbourne Cup Day each year, they experience an event that is part party; part raceday and always a sell-out.
With a variety of great hospitality precincts to buy tickets into, a fashion competition for the best dressed guy & girl (where the best-dressed female earns automatic entry into the regional final of The Ned Prix de Fashion), the Melbourne Cup screening live (plus races here at Ellerslie) and the famous on-site after-party* - you've got some very good reasons as to why you should come party at Ellerslie on the first Tuesday in November.
Please note timings are approximate & may be subject to change. For up-to-date event information, please visit the official website.
*R18; free entry to raceday guests; dress code applies; intoxicated persons not permitted.
