The excitement of the Lexus Melbourne Cup will return to Sydney on the first Tuesday in November, as Barangaroo hosts Cup Day Festival on Australia’s biggest raceday.

After last year’s huge success, Cup Day Festival will again bring the exhilarating action of ‘the race that stops a nation’™ to Sydney at a public live site in the harbour city’s newest waterfront precinct.

The VRC, together with Mumm Champagne and The Streets of Barangaroo, will welcome thousands of people to Barangaroo on Lexus Melbourne Cup Day, Tuesday 6 November, 2018. 

The Streets of Barangaroo will be the number one destination for Lexus Melbourne Cup Day celebrations in Sydney, with Sydneysiders and visitors to the harbour city invited to immerse themselves in all the colour and excitement of Australia’s most celebrated major event.

From 12pm to 9pm, the harbourfront location will come to life with everything that Australia’s premier racing event is famous for – champagne, fashion, entertainment and racing.

In the ultimate Lexus Melbourne Cup Day celebration, big screens will show the official coverage of all the thrilling action on and off the track from Flemington and the Wulugul Walk waterfront dining hub will be home to pop-up eateries and bars.

The Mumm Champagne Terrace will be the perfect place to celebrate the excitement of Lexus Melbourne Cup Day – get front row seats to all the action and raise a glass of Mumm Grand Cordon champagne to the victories of the day.

Cup Day Festival will also feature a Craft Beer Garden with laid back acoustic entertainment and the main stage will showcase a lineup of musical performances including headliner Furnace and The Fundamentals.

Punters can soak up the racing atmosphere with betting facilities on site.
