Tramore August Racing Festival – 19th August

Tramore August Racing Festival

Venue: Waterford and Tramore Racecourse

Waterford and Tramore Racecourse’s ongoing €1 million refurbishment will be showcased to the racing public at this action-packed, four-day August racing festival.

Approximately 20,000 are expected for this popular event, which includes three consecutive evening meetings and culminates in a fun-filled, colourful, family fun afternoon on the Sunday.

Generous prize money is on offer for all 28 races and the overall purse this year is €380,000 thanks to the support of long-established local businesses in backing the event.

The Tramore August Racing Festival is about much more than just racing. Corporate groups from across the southeast will flock to the track on the Friday for the Waterford Chamber BBQ evening, taking place in the Festival Marquee, whilst fashionistas from all over Ireland will enjoy fashion, racing, cocktails and fun on the Saturday evening.

This year’s Style Evening judge, Marietta Doran, has the unenviable task of choosing one overall winner and nine finalists at this year’s House of Waterford Crystal and Style Evening, which boasts a prize fund of €3,500.

The afternoon meeting on the final day is all about family fun. And don’t forget to enjoy live music in the bars after racing every evening to keep the party going until late.

€15 – €20

Self catering accommodation at Seacliff Holiday Homes, Dunmore East is the perfect location for all events within County Waterford.
