University Row at Virginia Gold Cup

May 7, 2016


The Virginia Gold Cup Races are on Saturday, May 7, and we’ll be back on University Row! Tickets are on sale NOW! Click here to buy yours now.

This year we have 4 pickup locations, two “hub” and two “spoke” (Hubs: in Dupont Circle at Madhatter, and in Ballston at A-Town Bar & Grill; spokes: in Crystal City at Crystal City Sports Pub (free garage parking!), and on Capitol Hill near Union Station at Union Pub). This means that tickets will sell out quickly for certain locations, and that they are limited in our tent. If your preferred pickup location is sold out, you can purchase tickets to the Friends of the Row tent or ANY other tent – yes, even ❌ichigan – click here for the full list of tents.

As of Monday, April 25, all transportation + tent tickets are sold out. There are still a very limited number of tent admission only (no transportation) tickets for sale. Additionally, you may be interested in bus transportation through Lindy Promotions, or Gold Cup Parking Passes on sale at DC-area Harris Teeter stores.
