The Melbourne Cup Carnival is a week long celebration of fashion, food and four exciting days of world-class thoroughbred racing held at Flemington Racecourse from 4 November to 11 November 2017.
The carnival is highlighted by the running of the Emirates Melbourne Cup (7 November), the richest prize in Australian sport. Whether you choose to stay for the other key events including the AAMI Victoria Derby Day (4 November), VRC Oaks Day (9 November) and Emirates Stakes Day (11 November), or choose only the main event - you will not be disappointed! While most of Australia stops to watch or listen to the race, there’s nothing like being there amongst the crowd to experience this truly unique event!
