ABOUT MELBOURNE’S SPRING RACING CARNIVAL
The Spring Racing Carnival is one of the world’s most prestigious and best known annual racing events. The carnival runs for 50 days and includes major metropolitan events that have a dedicated flower, as well as 76 country events held throughout the state of Victoria. The Spring Racing Carnival is a time to dress up, to wear the latest spring fashions, to party, to have fun and to enjoy the sport of kings. It is a great social occasion.
In Melbourne the carnival is for everyone and each year many hundreds of thousands of people from all walks of life attend meetings.
Many more are involved in racing parties and activities away from the track such as picnics, cocktail parties and breakfast barbeques by the Yarra River or their local park. Melbourne is the only city in the world that has a public holiday to celebrate its major race day, the Melbourne Cup, which is the central event for the Carnival and held on the first Tuesday in November. It is known as “The Race that stops a Nation”.
