The Armidale Cup

Join Us for the Armidale Cup!

The Armidale Cup is always held on the third Monday in March. The next Cup will be held on Monday 20th March 2017. 

This meeting coincides with a number of activities in Armidale over the weekend. It’s always a fun time for families, couples and groups of friends!

A Whole Weekend of Fun

The Armidale Cup is of course a big attraction during that weekend, but it’s not the only thing going on. Usually over that weekend, the big Rugby Union knock out happens. Be sure to stop by to watch, as many visiting sides compete for the top prize. The competition starts on Saturday and runs through to Sunday, when the final is played.

After the Rugby, come along to the Armidale Cup Calcutta, which is held at the Armidale Jockey Club. This is always a great night! Enjoy the many interviews and try your luck at the draw of the Calcutta. There’s great value to be had, so be sure to stop by and join the fun.

Everything wraps up on Monday with the Armidale Cup. Many of the visiting Rugby sides stay on for this event. The “St Pats” side from Sydney is a regular at the races. Be sure to stick around to watch the competition!

Best of all, the race is only part of the Armidale Autumn Festival. Explore the town to enjoy events like the Autumn Festival Parade, Armidale Charity Ball, Golf Day and Bowls Day. There’s something for everyone to enjoy.
