Packwood Grand will once again bring Calgary’s highly cultured, business-leading, and fashion forward young professionals the ultimate in luxury standardbred horse racing. This year’s event will be taking place at the newly opened Century Downs Racetrack and Casino north of Calgary on July 1, 2015.
Toted as the must attend social & lifestyle summer event, this year will host 1250 of Calgary’s bon vivants. It’s a true celebration of luxury and lavishness, boasting six exhilarating standardbred horse races, delectable food, and an atmosphere like you’ve never experienced.
This refined and colourful event is made possible by a host of sponsor partners including title sponsor ATB Financial, as well as CrossIron Mills, Craft Beer Market, Veuve Clicquot, and much more.
Guests will convene at a downtown location and will be taken to The Century Downs Racetrack and Casino via luxury coach busses, where they will spend the day trackside.
Showing off their societal graces, knowledge of fine music, and flair for couture, guests will bet on the ponies as they nibble on nosh and sip bubbles and signature libations created exclusively for this event.
Considered one of the premiere fashion events of the season, guests are encouraged to pull all the stops in the name of fashion. The event will include a ‘Style Stakes’ fashion contest to determine who is best dressed. Last year’s winner was local media maven, Gwydnolyn Richards.
Bring your hats, equestrian-themed pashminas and best cufflinks. It's time for a good old-fashioned day at the races!
