Socialising from a picnic site is an amazing way to spend your day at the Hollywoodbets Durban July. Picnic sites are equipped with a Hollywoodbets umbrella and basic furniture and are situated in front of the grandstand. The front row of picnic sites is almost on the running rail, right alongside the racetrack and the balance of the sites are about ten paces further back, close enough so that you can still feel the thud of the horses’ hooves as they race by.

Each site takes about fifteen guests and the prices range from R2000 to R5000 per site. This excludes entrance and parking tickets which can be purchased at an additional cost when you pay for your site. They are also available from ticketpro and SPAR stores nationally.

No liquor is allowed to be brought onto the racecourse precinct by any racemeeting attendee. It is required that all liquor and drinks (soft drinks included) are to be pre-ordered well in advance from Liberty Liquors, the event’s liquor supplier. Store prices will prevail – no additional mark-up. These will be delivered to your site when you arrive at the event, along with ice and a tub to keep the drinks cold. Top-up ice will be available for purchase close to the picnic sites. There will also be bars close by should you need to top up.

There will be many popular food vendors in the vicinity of the picnic sites and you are encouraged to purchase from them.
