Sydney will again come alive with the excitement of the Lexus Melbourne Cup, as Barangaroo hosts Cup Day Festival – the official live site to enjoy Australia’s biggest raceday.
Returning for a third year, Cup Day Festival will bring the exhilarating action of ‘the race that stops a nation’™ to Sydney at a free public live site in the harbour city’s newest waterfront precinct on the first Tuesday in November.
The Victoria Racing Club (VRC), together with Mumm Champagne and The Streets of Barangaroo, will welcome thousands of people to Barangaroo on Lexus Melbourne Cup Day, Tuesday 5 November, 2019.
With thousands attending last year’s event, Barangaroo will again be the number one destination for Lexus Melbourne Cup Day celebrations in Sydney. Sydneysiders and visitors are invited to immerse themselves in all the colour and excitement of Australia’s most celebrated major event.
From 12pm to 9pm, the Barangaroo will come to life with everything that Australia’s premier racing event is famous for – champagne, fashion, entertainment and racing.
All the thrilling action on and off the Flemington track will be shown on multiple big screens and the waterfront dining hub will feature food trucks, pop-up eateries and bars.
Step into the Mumm Champagne Terrace and savour a glass of Mumm Grand Cordon Champagne. Enjoy the day’s racing action and entertainment within the luxurious harbourside Terrace with Mumm Champagne bars and lounge area.
Cup Day Festival will also feature a Craft Beer Garden with laid back acoustic entertainment and a lineup of DJs across the precinct, with an exciting headline act (to be announced closer to the event date) to take the celebrations into the evening. Punters can soak up the racing atmosphere with betting facilities on site.
