Polo & Party at Polo & Provedores
Georgia Beard heralds the return of fashion, feasts and festivities with an after-party to remember at Polo & Provedores!
Spending a day at the polo is like stepping into another world, one with over a thousand years of history, yet rich with elegance and exhilaration. Men and women float across the field in linens and bright colours, florals and glamorous sunhats.
Cool champagne and canapés taste magical under the marquees, giving guests the verve they need to be part of the dash and divot-stomp.
The riders guide their thoroughbreds onto the pitch. As the thunderous clamour of hooves passes by, players bow like mounted warriors and mallets swing for the ball in graceful arcs.
Last year, Noosa Polo & Provedores debuted their chic sporting experience at Noosa Showgrounds with an emphasis on an amazing day out celebrating fillies, fashion and flavours. From families and fashionistas to socialites and sports enthusiasts, it was a hit.
Noosa Cartel and Black Ant Gourmet served the finest in homegrown cuisine while Master Jeweller Adrian Schulz of Diamonds of Distinction delivered a bespoke diamond pendant as first prize for Fashions on the Field!
On Saturday 14 October, Polo & Provedores will return with more extravagance and entertainment than ever, joined by Wishlist Sunshine Coast Health Foundation as their official charity partner for 2023.
The competitive arena style polo will culminate in the Polo & Provedores Grand Final, featuring some of the best polo players from across Australia!
Amongst the thoroughbred thrills, we’ll delight in the polo traditions of Divot Stomp, Find the Shoehorn and Kids’, Ladies’ and Gentlemen’s dash!
Billy J Fashions on the Field will reward the best-dressed guests with the chance to win a custom piece of jewellery crafted by Diamonds of Distinction and valued at $5000!
As the sun sinks over a decadent day out on Noosa Showgrounds, the celebrations will hit next level with a live performance from world-famous Hot Dub Time Machine!
Australian DJ Tom Lowndes showcases songs from every decade and genre of music, weaving it into one expansive and electrifying music history lesson.
His time travelling sets have been welcomed by international audiences with open arms, already selling a phenomenal 200,000 tickets worldwide.
Hot Dub is a main stage regular at festivals across the globe, including Australia’s Splendour in the Grass, Falls Festival and Groovin the Moo; the UK’s Reading and Leeds; Europe’s legendary Tomorrowland; Asia’s It’s The Ship and even Coachella in the USA!
We’ll turn back time at the After Party where Hot Dub will play songs in strict chronological order, mixing and mashing visuals and audio live from vinyl turntables for the Best. Party. Ever!
From luxe hospitality havens to leisurely picnics on the fence, Polo & Provedores offers a breathtaking sporting experience alongside stalls by regional provedores.
There are a range of experiences on offer from Premium Private Pavilions for ten to rubbing shoulders with competitors in the Player’s Lounge; classy and casual rendezvous in the Colts & Fillies Bar; or the laidback luxe of a reserved picnic space overlooking the arena. The Bollinger Bar will be flowing and hits from Pomona Distillery Co and Boiling Bot Brewery will keep guests hydrated with plenty of food on offer to satisfy the appetite!
There’s free parking onsite, shuttle buses available or for those seeking the ultimate ‘sense of arrival’ travel in style with Sunshine Coast Helicopter Tours who’ll be offering VIP transfers from Sunshine Coast Airport!
No matter what draws you to the spectacle of polo, dress to impress and prepare for a full day’s entertainment with all the action on the field followed by a thrilling post-Polo performance from Hot Dub Time Machine!
