Spring is in the air and the good weather lifts our spirits to get out and about for fun events like the Race Days. Nothing is better than to get dressed up and head to the horse racing fun events. Whether you are on course at the races or at an off course racing event where the races are shown on big screens, it’s a lot of fun to get dressed up and look good. The bonus is where Fashions are rewarded. It could be Best Dressed or Best Hat. Getting dressed to impress for Fashions on the Field competitions is fun and can be very rewarding!
There are many horse racing events around Australia through the year that incorporate Fashions on the Field competitions as part of the fabric of the race day experience. CupDay.com.au for the last 15 years tries to provide the dates and locations for many of these Fashions on the Field events around Australia. See Cup Day Fashions on the Fields web page.
There are also many Fashions on the Field events at hospitality venues around Australia that may be celebrating the various Big Days horse racing events. Examples of these include Fashions on the Field events at Hotels and Restaurants that provide packaged fun hospitality on Big Days like Cup Day. Many years ago the Big Days crew were at an off course hospitality event that had prizes for a Fashions on the Field competition that were huge. A friend went in the hotels fashions on the Field event and won! It put a huge smile on the crew for the whole day and beyond.
In Brisbane, Sydney, Perth, Adelaide, many of the venues celebrating the First Tuesday in November, Melbourne Cup day with dining events will have a Fashions on the Field best dressed competition.
