Polo in the Park - Summer 2017

Note: Due to the inclement weather, Polo in the Park was CANCELLED Saturday, July 22, 2017. If you bought a car pass for that event, you may use it to come to Polo in the Park on Saturday, July 29, 2017.

Morven Park launches its inaugural season of Polo in the Park this summer at the Morven Park International Equestrian Center. Arena polo matches, picnicking and dancing will take place every Saturday evening in July and August!

Spectators are encouraged to bring picnic baskets and blankets onto the terraced viewing area next to the riding arena, and a DJ will provide dance music in the pavilion tent immediately following the final polo matches throughout the summer. Stone Tower Winery – the Official Wine Sponsor of Polo in the Park – will offer wine for sale by the glass or by the bottle. Catoctin Creek Distillery – Official Spirits Sponsor – will offer cocktails for sale (ask for the Horse’s Neck!) as well as whiskey and gin by the bottle. Guests may also bring their own beverage of choice to enjoy at the polo matches. Different food trucks and dessert vendors are featured each week. Please follow Morven Park on Facebook to get weekly updates on the food truck offerings. 

Each night of the season will feature two matches, with one starting at 7 p.m. and the other starting at 8:30 p.m. The gates will open for spectators at 6 p.m.
