For the first time ever, an equestrian event is being held in the heart of downtown Vancouver and will play host to a 3:3 "Gladiator" Polo Match, from the Vancouver Polo Club & Dill Polo, and a 1.40meter Invitational Grand Prix.
A 200x100 ring, filled with 500 tons of silica sand, will be created for the occasion and spectators will be able to enjoy the afternoon's riveting proceedings from either the 8,000 sq ft fully hosted VIP area or the 800 person Strathcona Brewing Beer Garden.
General Admission is FREE with pony rides for children, food trucks and a massive beer garden for adults. You can even reserve a 7 person GA table (19+) for only $50.
If you're feeling extra classy, tickets to the hosted VIP area with light fare and beverages included are $100 each (19+) with reserved tables for seven starting at $1,000.
Be sure to grace the Grand Prix in your finest attire as a premium VIP table will be awarded to the best dressed group at the event and will also win a table at the Nations Cup on June 3rd at Thunderbird Show Park in Langley.
Location: Downtown Vancouver at West Georgia and Cambie Street - right across from the Queen Elizabeth Theatre
