Fashions on the Field showcase the glamour and style that is synonymous with country racing.


At the Burrandowan Picnic Races you will be given the opportunity to present your finest in trackside fashion!  Fashions on the Field offer entrants the chance to flaunt their racing style and win some fantastic prizes.




* FOTF spotters will be roving from 11.00am.

A team of Fashion on the Field spotters will wander through the crowd selecting suitably dressed entrants in each category. If you are selected by a spotter, you will be given a registration number and tag that must be displayed at all times until the winners of each category have been announced. You will be informed of the assembly point to meet at, prior to each category.

All participants must assemble at a nominated point 15 minutes before your category is judged. Entrants who have not presented themselves after their final call will forfeit their place in the competition.
