The Melbourne Cup Carnival kicks off with AAMI Victoria Derby Day and wraps up on Seppelt Wines Stakes Day. Undoubtedly one of the world’s most renowned and popular racing festivals, the Melbourne Cup Carnival attracts more than 310,000 spectators to Flemington over four race days each year. From Group 1 racing to some of Australia's biggest music acts preforming, there is something for everyone. 

It’s not just Derby Day in the City. Saturday will see Vianden seeking his third straight win in the Elders Mt Wycheproof Cup, while record crowds are expected at bet365 Mortlake Cup Day. It’s also Ladies’ Day at Traralgon and Derby Day at Healesville and it doesn't stop there. Melbourne Cup Day sees six country race meetings across Victoria in Cranbourne, Wangaratta, Echuca, Bairnsdale, Mildura, and Mansfield. Racegoers will be in for a treat on and off the track.
