Fabulous frocks, fine food and plenty of action on the field will contribute to a great day out at the Bundaberg Recreational Precinct when the 2022 Pop-Up Polo kicks off in June.
It will be the third year the event has been hosted in Bundaberg by Events Queensland.
Director Matthew Turich said the 2022 Pop-Up Polo event, scheduled for 18 June, would feature even more of a focus on local produce and business plus plenty of fun trackside.
“Guests can expect world class polo action coupled with locally inspired hospitality, bespoke marquees, vogue fashion and of course guest favourites which include the famous divot stomp, men's and women's dash, car v pony race, fashions on the field and the highly anticipated on-site after party,” he said.
“Our group is always striving to improve and we have developed robust relationships with some amazing local businesses as well as leading international brands, which will see the event continue to be elevated from a production and styling perspective.
“In addition, our executive chef is working tirelessly to develop a menu which showcases the abundance and quality of produce available in the Bundaberg Region.”
2022 Pop-Up Polo receives community support
Matthew said the local community had thrown its support behind Pop-Up Polo ever since it was launched in the region three years ago.
“The support for the event has grown year on year and in 2022 we are expecting in excess of 3000 guests, which illustrates the Bundaberg community's recognition and support of the event,” he said.
“The event also provides significant economic stimulus, with 30 per cent of all event guests attending from outside the Local Government Area.
“This results in those guests frequenting accommodation, retail, and hospitality venues etc. while in the region.”
Matthew said for those wanting to attend the 2022 Pop-Up Polo event, tickets were on sale.
“Pop-Up Polo is a sporting, social, fashion and culinary event all rolled into one and therefore appeals to a broad audience!”
The 2022 Pop-Up Polo Bundaberg will be held at the Bundaberg Recreational Precinct on Saturday 18 June.
