Packwood Grand 2017 Changes Dates
Hats off, ladies and gentlemen! Packwood Grand indulges in another year of lively fashion, refined creations, crafted libations, and a heart-pounding day of standardbred racing supporting Alberta’s horseracing community.
Packwood Grand has changed dates for 2017, inviting celebrants to merrymake on July 29, 2017 at Century Downs Racetrack and Casino in Balzac, Alberta.
“As revellers and supporters of community both locally and nationally, we have moved the event to ensure our guests are able to take in Canada’s 150th celebration and Stampede, while still being able to attend Packwood Grand,” says Cory Edwards, Co-Executive Producer of Packwood Grand. “The end of July is promising fantastic weather!”
This year, the stakes are getting higher as Packwood Grand is set to reveal an addition to its annual Style Stakes Fashion Awards with with an ode to the horsemen behind A Day at the Races. This year, the event is partnering with Calgary Jewellery to award the winning horse and jockey a prize valued at $3,000.
So mark your calendar, get on the list, pull out your hats and fascinators and get ready to celebrate the exquisite fashion, horserace, fine spirits, wine and jewels with Packwood Grand 2017.
