The Vodacom Durban July 2016
The Vodacom Durban July is not only Durban’s most prestigious event of the year but one of the biggest horse racing events in Africa. The next installment of the much-anticpated event runs on the 2nd of July 2016 at its usual home - the Greyville Racecourse.
Horse betters can expect a visual voyage of sartorial elegance at the 120th edition of the event. While the theme for 2016 has yet to be disclosed, attendees are encouraged to dress up in their finest getups. The Vodacom Durban July draws heavily on horseracing’s deeply-rooted tradition of elegance and chic fashion, and this year will tap into the formal style akin to a dining experience at a cruise liner Captain’s Table dinner.
Being strongly associated with fashion means that The Durban July is not only a great opportunity for designers but also a fun spectator event - you'll get to rub shoulders with local celebrities and fashionistas. If you're looking to claim the title for the best dressed, there will be various fashion competitions to take part in. If you think you've got what it takes, try your luck with the Kiss Most Striking Couple, Classic Race Wear (male and female categories) and Exceptional Race Day Hat or Fascinator.
The racecourse offers restaurant and bar facilities, corporate suites and the renowned Marquee Village, with a bird's eye view of the track.
The race course action takes place in Durban’s Golden Mile area, which encompasses the beachfront and surrounding areas running from South Beach (site of uShaka Marine World) to the Sun Coast Casino in the North. This area boasts lovely, action-packed beaches and accessibility to the city.
Please note that tickets can be bought from the Greyville Racecourse sales office on Avondale Road from 15 June 2016.
