Cup Day Festival

Tuesday 05 November 2019

Overview

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.

From noon till evening, 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.

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).
