Will you be there?

Are you ready to dress your best, head out to the race tracks, enjoy the spring sun and be part of a grand social gathering steeped in tradition and fun? 

The 2017 University Row will be celebrating its 19th season and remains the place to see and be seen. This year’s University Row will host 10 tents and alumni from over 90 local chapters, totaling over 1,000 guests, making it one of the largest inter-alumni social events in the Mid-Atlantic region. University Row is where DC’s finest watch the races… and where they mingle with fetching women in sundresses and dapper men in pastels. This year’s Row will build upon last year, with our expanded space across from Members Hill, along with new transportation and catering partners.

The Washington Post recognized the Row as “the primary social area” along the North Rail. We’ve continued to set new records in a number of categories, including sponsorship, alumni group recruitment, press coverage, and sales. Historically, we sell out within weeks of the race.

All tickets to University Row provide access to our exclusive tent area, our quality buffet, an open bar with premium liquor, beer, and wine selections, and of course, the races themselves. Most tickets also include luxury transportation to and from the Row. Since we treat all our guests like VIP’s, University Row provides the best value at the Virginia Gold Cup!

- Admission to Gold Cup, one of the most attended horse races on the East Coast

- A commemorative cup and race day program

- Open bar, including premium liquor, beer, and wine selections plus waters, sodas and juices
