Foxfield Races

  • Apr 25, 2009 · 9:30 AM
  • Chipotle

The biggest CYP event of the year is almost here. The Foxfield Races are more than just a Charlottesville tradition; they are the biggest party of the year! Here is all the info you need to know: If you have already purchased your tickets, fantastic, if not, time is running out.
There are tickets left, but numbers are limited and you must purchase yours by Friday the 17th. Whether you're a veteran or a first timer, Foxfield is
the one event that should not be missed. Join us for a day of eating, drinking, and horse racing on the prestigious South Hill as we enjoy fine weather, friends, and some of the East Coast's best thoroughbreds running the track. Foxfield is the stuff of legends in CYP circles, so grab your ticket now before we sell out. Tickets are available on a first paid, first served basis. Feel free to bring a non-CYP friend along, as we also have non-member tickets available. As an extra bonus, if you purchase 2 or more tickets, you'll get a free parking pass that will allow you to park right outside of the tent. Don't forget that the price of your ticket includes prime real estate on South Hill where you can walk right up to the track, a sumptuous buffet of gourmet food, and all the alcohol/beverages that you can drink. These tickets are also all-access tickets, so you can wander throughout the infield and outfield.
Tickets are $60 for CYP members and $75 for non-CYP members. You can purchase your tickets online via Paypal
(please change the amount accordingly for member vs. non-member and the number of tickets being purchased), or by cash/check from a CYP representative at designated events. Due to the limited number of tickets available, all tickets are non-refundable.
Ticket Pick Up: You may pick up your tickets from Shawnee at C’ville Coffee on Wednesday the 22nd from 6:00-8:30 pm. If you have purchased two or more tickets you may also grab your parking pass from Shawnee. You may also claim your tickets and parking pass at the carpool site the morning of the event. Now that you have your tickets, here are some things you should know:
Carpooling: For people interested in carpooling, we will meet in front of Chipotle at the Barracks Road Shopping Center at 9:30 am. Stacey will be there wrangling people into cars. You have until 10 am sharp to get there, NO EXCEPTIONS! Hey, we want to get to the party sometime, too. Our number one goal is that everyone has a fun and safe experience. As soon as we will fill up a car, hand out parking passes and tickets, we will send a full vehicle with a designated driver on its way. Some people will have to volunteer to be DD’s, again safety first. If you are the driver make sure you print off a copy of the
MAP and DIRECTIONS to show how to get to Foxfield and where the CYP tent is at!
What to bring: CYP is taking care of all of your food and beverages [beer & wine]. Feel free to bring extras if you want, but, remember, cans only. No glass is allowed in, so if you want something harder, don’t tell us how you smuggled it in. You should bring: sunscreen; umbrella or rain gear (just in case); extra cash for vendors if you want. Giant hats are optional, but encouraged. If you have any other questions just ask a board member or email [masked] and we’ll be happy to fill you in. We look forward to another great day at the races! Don't miss out on our biggest event of the year. Grab your ticket now and become part of CYP history! See you at the races!
