Fashions on the Field


Fashions on the Field returns to Parkes Picnic Races, with fabulous prizes on offer, it’s time to turn heads. A team of ‘Fashions on the Field’ spotters will be keeping a close eye on the crowd for race wear that expresses style and originality, selecting semi-finalists. As the crowd on Picnic Race Day is large, suitably dressed candidates are invited to present themselves at the semi-final judging a little bit earlier than 2pm to ensure that you don’t miss out!


All judging commences at 2pm at the Parkes Coradgery and Diggers Amateur Racing Club Committee Tent, near the track. It is recommended to arrive a little bit early to ensure that you don’t miss out. Finalists from each category will have the opportunity to show fashions on the stage immediately after initial judging.


Judging starts at 2pm for all categories.


Finals to be held between Races at approximately 3.30pm.


Fashionable fillies, stylish gents and chic kids have the opportunity to be crowned the highly sought after Fashions on the Field winner, with Best Dressed categories featuring Junior, Teenager, Gent, Most Stylish Couple, Cutting Edge, Most Elegant Lady and Millinery Award.
