Steeplechase of Charleston

Bring your friends and family for a splendid day spent outdoors watching world-class horse racing. In between the races, take advantage of early holiday shopping by visiting our Merchant Market– filled with the best of Lowcountry artisans. Bring a tailgate spread and enjoy an afternoon of fun.

With deep roots in southern heritage, this Charleston tradition began in 1792 and will be ushered into its new era. The family-friendly Sunday event will feature high-stakes races with coveted titles on the line. So pack your coolers, grab your big hats and bow ties. We’ll see you at the races!
