One of the most significant and glamorous events on the Australian racing calendar, the Spring Racing Carnival is just around the corner!  

The Australian racing scene comes alive from September to November and is where fashion meets entertainment and of course horse racing. 

So, what can you expect to see at the Spring Racing Carnival? 


Horse Racing:  

The Carnival features a series of horse racing events, including some of Australia's most renowned races, such as the Melbourne Cup, Caulfield Cup, Cox Plate, and Victoria Derby. These races attract top-quality horses, trainers, and jockeys from around the world. 


Fashion plays a crucial role in the Spring Racing Carnival. Attendees, both women and men, dress in their finest attire. The fashion is often characterized by colourful and elegant outfits, with a strong emphasis on headwear, including elaborate hats and fascinators. 

Social and Entertainment:  

The Carnival is not just about horse racing; it's also a social and entertainment spectacle. Attendees enjoy gourmet dining, live music, and various forms of entertainment, creating a lively and festive atmosphere at the racecourses. 

Ladies' Day:  

One of the most iconic days in the Spring Racing Carnival is "Ladies' Day," typically held during the Melbourne Cup Carnival. On this day, women showcase their elegant and stylish outfits, often accompanied by a signature hat or fascinator. 

Fashions on the Field:  

This is a well-known fashion competition held at many of the Carnival's events. Participants compete for prizes in various fashion categories, promoting innovation and creativity in race day attire.
