Ellerslie kicks off the start of the New Zealand Herald Christmas Carnival in style with our iconic Boxing Day races!

Running for over 150 years, Ellerslie's Boxing Day Races are an institution.

This event is the beginning of The New Zealand Herald Christmas Carnival and is always a magnificent day of high fashion, entertainment, socialising and premier thoroughbred racing.

Spend your day checking out the premier thoroughbred racing, sights in Cuvée, lazing around on the Herald on Sunday Champagne Lawn, soaking up the breath-taking fashion and glamour of Viva Fashions in the Field or immersing yourself in the summer raceday spirit on one of our many public lawns oncourse or at Beach, Beats & BBQs in the Ellerslie Infield!

Viva Fashions in the Field -
Viva Fashions in the Field is where you dress to impress! Last year's judges Claire Hahn, Liam Fennell and Janetta McKay commented on the high calibre of entry, blending race wear with catwalk fashion trends and we expect the same this year.

Beach, Beats & BBQ's -
This is where racegoers head to the infield for to enjoy a relaxed day of music, plenty of entertainment for the kids in The New Zealand Herald Kids Zone and a fiercely competed Beach Cricket tournament!

Remember! You're more than welcome to bring along your own food, unopened non-alcoholic beverages, umbrellas, chairs, picnic tables, mini-marquees (and even the kitchen sink!) into public areas oncourse, but you'll have to leave the stronger stuff at home as Ellerslie is a fully-licensed venue and BYO alcohol is not permitted.
