3:45pm - AAMI Victoria Derby
Cup Week starts with a fusion of monochrome fashion, first-class racing and celebrations at AAMI Victoria Derby Day.
Regarded as one of the most prestigious days of racing of the spring, AAMI Victoria Derby Day features a card of nine Group races, four at the elite Group 1 level. The feature Group 1 AAMI Victoria Derby, worth over AUD $2 million, is Australia's premier staying classic for three year olds.
Off the track, the fashion stakes are equally impressive, thanks to the Myer Fashions on the Field competition for both men and women. Ladies embrace the traditional black and white palette, while men often choose to wear a grey morning suit and top hat, creating classic racing elegance in a larger than life world of glamour and sophistication.
The Park is the home of Myer Fashions on the Field, Australia's largest and most prestigious outdoor fashion event. This iconic celebration of fashion and racing will see stylish women, men and families from around Australia showcasing their beautiful style and incredible creations.
Melbourne’s trendiest eateries will be serving up a range of tasty cuisines and delicious eats in The Park across the four days of Cup Week. From American-style pizza slices to Instagram-worthy cartoon character baos, there will be plenty on the menu to delight your taste buds. Plus indulge in an array of sips in stylish bars.
Brisbane’s melancholic pop masters Ball Park Music are made of five curious minds that thrive on musical experimentation.
The Park is a fabulous playground for the young at heart. Featuring arcade games, beauty touch-ups, secret photo moments and a carousel, there’s so much to see and do in The Park.
