Grapes or Grains Beverage Picnic and Twilight Polo

Before the summer is over, its time for one of our favorite outdoor picnic events while watching a twilight game of polo and an after game party with DJ music.

Twilight Polo

On Saturday nights Great Meadow in The Plains, is a choice for many local and city dwellers to spend a summer evening outdoors while enjoying a game of polo.

There are three matches each Saturday night. Long before the first match starts at 6 p.m., regulars begin arriving to spread their blankets and picnics on the grassy hill overlooking the arena.

But don't be intimidated if you have never seen a polo match; Twilight Polo is an easy introduction to the sport.

Unlike polo that is played on grass, where the field stretches the equivalent of around three football fields, this version is played in a small dirt arena, making it much easier to see the ball and keep up with the action. The announcer also calls the plays and explains penalties.

Our Potluck Grapes or Grains Beverage Picnic

This is a great event to invite your friends for a fun night in the countryside to watch the horses gallop amid the crisp fresh summer breeze while enjoying a picnic.

We will set up some blankets for the food, but please bring either a picnic chair or a blanket to sit back and watch the game along with your favorite grapes or grains beverage and some light food to share.

We usually set up our picnic spot near the announcers tent, so participants can easily find our group.

The entry for the polo event is $25 per car purchased in advance or $30 at the gate, and we recommend carpooling for this event and sharing the cost.
