About the Hunterdon Polo Classic

“The Hunterdon Polo Classic continues the tradition of family-friendly fun and raising funds and awareness for charities. This year’s event benefits five local charities including the Hunterdon Art Museum, Prevention Resources, Inc., Riding With HEART, Friendly Sons of St. Patrick, The Takaezu Studio project, and Valley Crest Farm and Preserve.

Join us for a day in the country enjoying a fast-paced polo match, classic cars, equestrian entertainment, Tewksbury Foot Bassets, Essex Fox Hounds and many other special events. Be sure to visit the Community Corner where organizations that serve our community will be on hand to promote their unique value and mission. The Quakertown Fire Company will be holding a raffle at the Polo Classic.

The format of the event is “tailgating,” so pick your theme and show off your best spread. Tailgaters will be vying for prizes for the most elegant tailgate and best food along with individual prizes for best hat and best children’s hat. Be sure to join us at half-time for the Hat Parade.

Fieldside tailgates are available as well as General Admission. Food will be available for purchase. Children under twelve are free.

Gates open at 12:00. Festivities start at 1:00. Polo match at 2:00.

The Hunterdon Polo Classic 2018-1

Sort of like “The Hunt”

This event is along the same lines as “The Hunt,” also called the Far Hills Race Meeting.

A fun, social event, where people gather, mingle, show-off, and indulge in fine beverages and food.

Additionally, people can pull out all the stops to make their allocated spaces super fancy, and win prizes for being the most elegant.

Certainly, based on demographics – this Polo Classic will not be as widely attended as the infamous hunt (and undoubtedly fewer raging drunks), it’s still an exciting event for residents living in the western/central portion of the Garden State.

We dig this western area south of Route 22. Something enigmatic about it. Very rural – but not quite 100%. Many pockets of diverse lifestyles out in these parts. A couple cities come to mind when we think about this region – Milford and Frenchtown. We make a point to get out here at least a few times a year.

Anyone going to this event?
