Easter is around the corner, and that means the fashionable Oakbank Races are almost upon us.
The Easter carnival has been a tradition for many, and this year, there are a host of options to make the weekend extra special.
Oakbank Week––which has been designed and driven by the Oakbank Racing Club and endorsed by industry body Racing SA––will in 2021 encompass a family-focused race day as the carnival opener on Sunday March 28th, followed by a new midweek Corporate & Community Race day on Wednesday March 31st, and culminating with the traditional feature race day on Easter Saturday 3rd April.
The ever-resilient Oakbank Racing Club has waited, planned and prepared for their annual carnival Oakbank Week, and now is the time to see their plans come to life as they welcome faithfuls back to celebrate with them this Easter.
“We’re building on 145 years of history to create a new tradition here at Oakbank that reflects what our industry and supporters would like to see, while staying true to what has made our Easter racing carnival one of the biggest events on the South Australian racing and social calendar,” says Oakbank Racing Club Chair Arabella Branson.
Each race day will feature at least eight races (including jumps) and a host of great food wine and entertainment.
For the feature day, there are a whole host of ways to enjoy the race.
The standard package is general admission which is only $30, and children up to the age of 17 are free. The general admission ticket gets you access to all general admission areas as well as pop up bars and food trucks, and it allows you to bring your own picnic and alcohol.
Of course if you want all the glitz and glamour of a day at the races, there are a number of packages as an option as well.
One option is reserving a table trackside so you won’t miss any of the action. To reserve a trackside table it is $60 per person or $110 per person with a 10-drink card.
If you want to really step it up a notch, you can party in the paddock marquee for $200 per person, which includes a whole host of things including lunch and a drinks package.
The Oakbank Racing Club Carnival is on the 28th March, 31st of March and April 3rd, see here for more details and to purchase tickets.
