The Sun Met Horse Race

Place: Kenilworth Racecourse  (01 Feb 2020 )

The J&B Met

South Africa’s most celebrated outdoor social, fashion and sporting events of the year, The Sun Met (previously known as the J&B Met) will, for the 43rd time, merge equestrian prowess with high fashion at the Kenilworth Racecourse in Cape Town on Saturday, 01 February 2020. Next year's event promises to be bigger and better than ever!

The Sun Met is held at the Kenilworth Racecourse in Cape Town every year. Facilities include a 5 000 capacity marquee village and 184 picnic sites. Head on over to The Sun Met to see and be seen and perhaps, place a bet or two!

Whether you're dressing to impress, betting on horses or partying the day away, The Sun Met is the one you do not want to miss!

It is a gathering of: the rich and famous, the groovers and movers, the fashion junkies and the thousands who seek to enjoy the intensity of life and a good party. 
Kenilworth Racecourse will be transformed into a "party zone" as more than 50 000 groovers descend onto Cape Town from across this beautiful land to party the night away. The race showcases 16 of South Africa’s top horses who compete for the R2,500,000.00 stake over 2 000 meters.

The Sun Met Public Village can host up to 2 500 people on the day. Visitors can wine and dine alfresco at the many picnic spots available or simply settle down for the day in the stands. No alcohol or beverages are allowed to be brought into the event. There will be various on-course vendors selling hard and soft drinks and mixers.

The event will set up a Public Village on the winning straight of the racecourse. This open-to-the-public arena will host food trucks, public bar facilities, ample seating and shade. What’s more, this general access zone will also have entertainment on the bill, with one of Cape Town’s biggest radio stations on site and one of South Africa’s leading bands as the main act.

And of course, while horse racing enthusiasts inspect the talent and place their bets, party animals can boogie down in VIP comfort at The Sun Met Oasis. This exclusive venue offers top-class entertainment from top DJs and the opportunity to mingle with the celebrities; not to mention, the stylish lounge setting boasts prime views of the race as well as first-class bars and food vendors. What’s more, the Oasis Style Pass will allow guests access to reserved parking, entry to the racecourse and includes a coveted ticket to the official Afterparty.
