What should I wear?
You’ll see everything from Sunday Best to Country Casual for both men and women at the Foxfield Races. Women lean towards dresses, while men are usually in a shirt and tie, often paired with khaki shorts. Hats are a big favorite at the races! The most important thing to remember is to wear appropriate shoes or boots, as you will be in a field the whole day.

Due to the safety of horses and riders, personal pop-up tents with four corner stakes may be used in your parking spot. Your tent must be adequately secured in the ground and behind the line drawn in your space.
