Saddle Up for the Cup!

Saddle Up for the Cup!

It's the race that stops a... city? 

One of the jewels of the regional racing calendar, the Geelong Cup is a gala event that announces the upcoming Spring Carnival and sees international talent head to the Geelong Racecourse for a day of high-caliber country racing. 

A public holiday in Geelong, the big day includes all the favourites of a major race-meet with marquees, celebrities, awesome hospitality options and Fashions on the Field.

Little Geelong - Newly opened in 2017, this free space is available for all racegoers and includes a host of food, fashion and entertainment from local producers and operators.

Fashions on the Field - The Westfield Geelong Fashions on the Field is always a staple on Cup Day and we attract some of the best competitors in the state. In 2017 our total prize pool is worth over $24,000 and everybody will receive various prizes just for entering! 

Free Shuttle Service - A FREE bus service will be running to shuttle satisfied racegoers to the station and CBD.


Two-for-One General Admission Offer - Book online and bring a friend (or get the gang together and coordinate for half price entry).

The Sporting Globe MarqueeGlam up and get ready for Geelong's biggest party in the Sporting Globe Marquee, located in the heart of all the action, this marquee offers an alternative for those racegoers who are looking for a relaxed party atmosphere (with all the luxuries of a marquee).
