Ladies, slip into your best dress and put on a fascinator and gentleman lace up those leather shoes and tighten up your tie. It’s time for the Ekka races! One of Brisbane’s favourite days to go to the races is back again. Gates open at 11am at Doomben Racecourse for a day full of celebrations and friendly competition.

BRC has all the trackside entertainment covered. Whether it’s the Mekka Fashions on the Field, music by CARMADA or a visit to the Beer Hall, you’ll have a fantastic day under the Brissy sun this Wednesday.
