Experience the thunder of horses running full speed and the elite skill of polo players.
Players from around the globe will travel to Seattle for the incredible Seattle Polo Party. This annual event on Saturday, August 11, 2018. This annual special event includes multiple polo games, Freestyle PasdeDeux, fashion show, hat contest, and an after party complete with DJ.
There is no other event like the Seattle Polo Party so dress to impress and be prepared for the highlight social event of the summer.
Polo matches are a fun way to surround yourself with equestrian culture in a social setting. The most important thing to bring to a match is your enthusiasm for the game, but there is more entertainment at the polo party than just the game. You can meet the players and horses, stomp divots and enjoy the fashion show. Each polo match is replete with a few traditions. You are encouraged to bring picnic or tailgating items. You will also be prompted to take part in the interactive “stomping of the divots” during the half-time. This tradition makes wearing high heels difficult, as you are to walk out to the field and literally stomp turf back into the holes created by the horses’ hooves. Beware of the “steaming” divots!
Horses are majestic animals and they’re a big part of the sport of polo. The connection between horse and rider will be showcased through various equestrian exhibitions. Between the two games, local equestrians perform an Andalusian Freestyle PasdeDeux to highlight the beauty and grace achievable between horse and rider. Western riders showcase their skills for the crowd with a roping and reining exhibition.
Hats are the thing at a polo game and at halftime, the women in hats partake in the parade of hats. The line of women stretches the length of the polo field and is quite a sights….at least for the guys. Fashion sponsor supplied prizes are awarded for the best hats in four categories: Polo Theme, Sexiest, Biggest and Spirited Hat. From hats and sundresses to fedoras and seersuckers, fashion is a big part of polo everywhere. Everyone dresses to impress and the Seattle Polo Party brings fashion to the spectators. The Fashion Tent hosts designers and boutiques each set up to display a selection of their best fashions. Brands such as Alan Goldfarb, Leisure Society, J. Hilburn, deVuono and more are a big part of the polo party fashion scene. In between games you’ll enjoy a fashion show organized by Seattle’s key movers in the Seattle fashion scene.
Players come from all over the Northwest with professionals from Mexico, Argentina, and the US to play the Seattle Polo Party game. You’ll be able to walk past the players’ trailers on the end line and see what it takes to play a polo game. Walk around the horses and meet the players getting ready for the game. It’s like being in the pits for an auto race. You’ll be able to meet the players and the horses that make the game so amazing. At halftime, here’s time during the divot stomp to meet and greet players on their favorite horse. This is a great photo op for those looking for some social media love.
