After selling out last season at both OMF Melbourne Cup Day & Barfoot & Thompson Auckland Cup Day, The Enclosure is back and gearing up to entertain Auckland’s social set again this year. 

It's fashionable, it's playful, it's bustling and it's the place to be.

Located in a brilliant outdoor lawn location beside the racetrack, there’ll be plenty of amazing “wish you were here” photo opportunities as the horses gallop past in the background.

Start the party off right with a delicious drink on arrival, tuck in to some of Auckland's best street food - exclusive to The Enclosure - watch the action of the Lexus Melbourne Cup live on the outdoor super screens and enjoy the company of mates in this sell-out Melbourne Cup Day precinct.  

Then, after the last race at Ellerslie, keep the fun going with your mates & others from the day at the official after party in our exclusive Cuvée bar until 9.30pm.

With the demand experienced in 2018, this precinct looks like it will sell out so tickets will be allocated strictly in order of payment.

  • Drink on arrival

  • Food voucher to be used at the exclusive pop-up food vendor (EFTPOS and cash sales available for anyone wanting more)

  • Racecourse & The Enclosure admission, race book & pen
