If fashionable equestrian events and drinking luxe French bubbly sound like your ideal combination for a Saturday afternoon in LA, mark your cal for the return of the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic. The stylish and star-frequented event returns to the Will Rogers State Historic Park next month for its eight installment, bringing world-famous polo star and model Nacho Figueras and more pros alongside celebs to the Pacific Palisades' grassy green space.
Happening Saturday, October 14 from 11am to 5pm (the match starts at 2pm), the all-day, 21+ affair promises plenty of champagne, food trucks, photo ops, merch, and more. You've got three admission options to suit your wallet: general admission is $75 (includes shuttle service), Fast Pass entry is $135 (includes line privileges for the event shuttle), and Rosé Garden VIP tickets for $400 (includes access to the exclusive VIP lounge area, a bottle of Veuve Clicquot Rosé, gourmet lunch by Wolfgang Puck, and dedicated parking and shuttle service).
Note that there are rules for the fashion-faved event: While hats, picnic blankets, outside food and snacks, sealed water bottles, and sunscreen are allowed, guests are kindly asked to leave drones, pets, outside alcohol, large beach umbrellas, bikes and skateboards, pro photography equipment, and weapons (obvi) at home. Since the event is 21 and up, babies and children are not allowed. For those considering Lyfting or Ubering to the event, know that there's a dedicated drop-off lot as there will be no direct access to the park itselfl.
