Gates will open at noon for tailgating. Pre-match activities start at 12:30 pm with a performance by St. Ann's Pipes and Drums, a classic car parade and a live rendition of the National Anthem. The much anticipated polo match begins at 2 p.m., with an intermission at the half. Highlighting the intermission will be the traditional divot stomp, the hat parade and competition, a demonstration by the Tewksbury Foot Bassets and the Essex Fox Hounds and tailgate awards presentations.

The Quakertown Fire Company's raffle drawing will be held at the end of the match. The raffle will be followed by an awards ceremony, including team awards, MVP, and Best Playing Pony, the Bruce Nienstedt Perpetual Cup.
