Auckland Cup Week Derby Day Garden Party
Auckland Cup Week Derby Day Garden Party

Everyone’s favourite Garden Party is back and gearing up to entertain Auckland’s social set this Vodafone Derby Day as part of Auckland Cup Week® 2021.

If you’re looking for a vibrant atmosphere and plenty of people-watching prospects, this is the precinct for you. 

Located in a fantastic outdoor location on the Newmarket Lawn, there’ll be plenty of amazing “wish you were here” photo opportunities as the horses gallop past in the background.

Enjoy feasting on classic kiwi fare from a pop-up food vendor and the chilled range of beverages available within the precinct and get set to go from neck tie to neck-in-neck in this sell-out area.

Then, after the last race, keep the fun going with your mates & others from the day at the official after party in our exclusive Cuvée bar until 8.30pm.

This area sells out and so tickets will be allocated strictly in order of payment.

Tickets include:
  • A voucher that can be used to redeem a food item at the Garden Party's exclusive pop-up food vendor 

  • A drink on arrival

  • Racecourse & Garden Party admission, race book & pen

  • Cash bar featuring Champagne, selected standard & premium New Zealand still & sparkling wines, light & standard local & imported beers, cider & non-alcoholic beverages

  • Access to covered shade & shelter; unreserved, limited tables & chairs

  • Entry into the official after-race festivities in our exclusive Cuvée Bar after the last race at Ellerslie 

You are able to go and compete in, or watch, the day's fashions competitions with a ticket in this precinct
