More information about The Moët & Chandon July Festival 2022

Where is The July Festival held?

The festival takes place in Suffolk at Newmarket Racecourse, renowned for its world class flat racing. Newmarket has been synonymous with horse racing for centuries and is considered one of the most famous and recognisable centres of racing in the world.

What can you do at The Newmarket July Festival?

The festival offers three days of racing at its finest with a range of hospitality packages ranging from alfresco dining to VIP restaurant experiences in exclusive areas of the racecourse. There is also a programme of entertainment to enjoy once the racing finishes in the evening and a variety of bars where you can sample incredible champagnes.

Why is it called The Moët & Chandon July Festival?

Champagne has been long considered “the great racecourse drink” thanks to Alfred Simon, a former British agent for Moët & Chandon whose two horses (named Moët and Chandon) won their two respective races at Epsom in 1908. The prestigious brand has been closely tied with the sport ever since and the summer festival at Newmarket is a celebration of the association.

What is the Darley Day at The Moët & Chandon July Festival?

The Darley July Cup takes place on the final day of the festival and is amongst the most reputable sprint races in world horse racing. The winner of this race is generally considered to be the top sprinter in the sport and is regarded with high esteem. It is for this reason that Saturday at The Moët & Chandon July Festival is called Darley Day.
