The thrill and excitement of the New Zealand Herald Christmas Carnival is a long-standing highlight of the Auckland social calendar!

From the premier location of Cuvee to the party atmosphere of the Viva Champagne Lawn, Boxing day has the best horses, prestigious races and the ultimate in fashion and glamour! Fashion has been a focus at Ellerslie for more than 40 years, when the first Fashions in the Field competition was held! With over $65,000 in prizes to be won across six different categories, who will take centre stage and win this years event?

For a fantastic New Year's Day celebration, families and friends can enjoy a traditional kiwi BBQ on the Alfresco BBQ Lawn.
