Alexandra Park’s popular dining packages for Auckland Cup Day on New Year’s Eve have been released and interest has again been strong.

“We are telling people that if they want a table for New Year’s Eve to book now to avoid disappointment,” Danielle Upton, Sales & Events Coordinator said.

Tickets to the sumptuous buffet dinner range from $60 per person to $110 for premium beverage packages and prime viewing.

View Racing Action

Hosted in the Tasman Room, the spacious venue has stunning floor-to-ceiling windows offering a fantastic view of all the racing action.

Bookings are only required for the Tasman Room.

The Alex Bar & Eatery and The Lyell Creek Lounge will also be open, offering more casual dining options.

“Auckland Cup Day will again be a fun family afternoon with entry into Alexandra Park free, along with free parking and race books. There are plenty of great reasons to come along, enjoy the sun and the last afternoon of 2017 before your New Year’s celebrations start up for the night.”

Kicking off from 2 pm on New Year’s Eve, there will be food trucks, ice creams, activities, face painting and much more. Premier racing will take place from around 3 pm to 8 pm followed by a fireworks’ display after dark.

Big crowd expected

Alexandra Park Chief Executive Dominique Dowding said that the spectacle of some of the country’s best harness racing, as well as plenty of off-track attractions will ensure a big crowd and a fun day on Sunday, December 31, 2017.
