Live it up at the Twilight Races! Have you been naughty or nice?
While most Aucklanders will be rushing through the streets under the stresses of the season, those in the know will be at Ellerslie partying at the Twilight Races - the best place to be naughty or nice at this Christmas!
You’ll want to leave work early, dress up and hurry down to the track to catch the first race around 4:30pm. This action-packed evening, with only 30 minutes between each of the six races, music to keep the temperatures rising and a party after the last race means you’ll be living it up 'til the sun goes down!
It's Auckland's ultimate Christmas party!
Hospitality options including private functions are available for purchase or booking. Children under 15 years get in free.
Racecourse gates open 3:30pm. Hospitality options open 4:15pm with the exception of the Garden Party in Cuvée which opens at 4pm. First race runs at about 4:40pm.

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.
