Come and join us for a wonderful afternoon in the picturesque hills of Hunterdon County, enjoying fabulous entertainment and supporting several worthy causes — the Hunterdon Art Museum, NJ Prevent, the Friendly Sons of St. Patrick - Hunterdon, Riding with Heart, the Toshiko Takaezu Studio Project and Valley Crest Farm & Preserve. The Hunterdon Polo Classic combines the equestrian sport of polo with family friendly tailgating, classic cars, traditional entertainment, tailgate and hat competitions.

The afternoon's entertainment is unlike any other in the area. The farm offers a stunning backdrop for an exciting game of polo and a day of exceptional tailgating. Many of the ladies wear dresses and wide brimmed hats, competing in the Best Hat Competition and Most Original Hat Competitions. Young ladies under 12 may compete in the Children's Best Hat Competition. Tailgaters compete for Most Original Tailgate, Best Gourmet Presentation, and Most Elegant Tailgate prizes.

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.

Excellent viewing opportunities are available from sideline tailgate spaces available for $200, $300, $500 and $1,250 based upon location and amenities included.
