Hops & Hooves Festival cancelled

The Canberra Racing Club regrets to announce that the Hops & Hooves Festival scheduled for Saturday 25 September has been cancelled in consideration of the developing Covid-19 situation and current health orders in place for the ACT.

The ACT Government announced on 16 August 2021 that the ACT will remain in lockdown until at least September 2 2021. For the safety of the community and compliance with current stay at home orders the club had deemed the festival too high a risk activity at this time.

“The Club is bitterly disappointed that we’ve been forced to cancel the inaugural Hops & Hooves Festival but we must put the safety of the community first.” Canberra Racing Club Chief Executive Officer Andrew Clark said.

“The community support for the Hops and Hooves Festival has been incredible with many pre-purchased tickets sold before we suspended sales. Given this wonderful support we will look to run this exciting event once COVID-19 allows.”

Patrons who had already purchased via Ticketek will be given a full refund.

The inaugural Hops & Hooves Festival will now be planned for 2022.
