Event Details


Address and Details:

Watch the Official Kentucky Derby in style! The Victory Cup Polo Match, which has been called “The Best Kentucky Derby Party in Texas” returns to Austin, TX on Saturday, May 4th. Dust off the lucky hats, pastel dresses and seersucker suits, and bring the kids and dogs for a day of fun at the Victory Cup Polo Match and Kentucky Derby Party in Austin, Texas!

Get ready to cheer on several live polo matches leading up to a live broadcast of the “the most exciting 2 minutes in sports” -- The Kentucky Derby on a huge LED jumbotron screen on the polo field.

Hot Air Balloons are a fun and important part of this festival but extremely weather contingent. Balloons. Polo. Live Music. Fashion. Food. Drinks. Vendors. In its fifteenth year, this event isn’t just a polo match or balloon festival, it’s a networking and social destination drawing thousands for each event. For those who are primarily attending to see balloons only please come prepared to enjoy the full festival schedule and understand that weather may ground balloons.

The best way to experience the Kentucky Derby, without being at the Derby! You will be on the field, with the horses and players and have an amazing excuse to get dressed up and enjoy some awesome spring weather. Not just about the Derby, get ready to enjoy a wide range of phenomenal food from dozens of Austin Chefs in the Victory Cup Vending area and sip delicious Derby cocktails from dozens of local and national brands.

The day starts at day break with a scheduled Hot Air Balloon Inflation, on the polo field around 7AM! After the Hot Air Balloon Activation (weather permitting), the food, wine and polo portion of the schedule kicks off for all passholders including Golden Mallet VIP’s and Founder’s Lounge Passholders. The VIP portion of the event will include live music, a Hospitality Alcohol Tasting Tent opening at 11AM, casual Fieldside Dining, rivalry Polo Matches, and a kids play area for all passholders! The Polo Matches will go from approximately 11AM until 4PM.

Balloon Pilots will return to the property in later afternoon and will be setting up at 4PM on Saturday, on
