Oakbank Announces New Dates for 2020
South Australia’s exceptionally popular Oakbank Racing Club has unveiled a new week-long celebration of racing, family and community for April 2020. Oakbank Week – which has been designed and driven by the Oakbank Racing Club and endorsed by Thoroughbred Racing SA (TRSA) – will now encompass racing on Sunday 5 April, followed by a new midweek raceday on Wednesday 8 April, and culminating with the traditional feature raceday on Easter Saturday 11 April. Oakbank Racing Club Chair Arabella Branson revealed, “We’re building on 144 years of history to create a new tradition at Oakbank that reflects modern consumer demand while staying true to the fundamentals that have made the Easter Racing Carnival one of the biggest events on the South Austrlalian racing and social calendar.” Building on what is already the best attended race day of the year in the state, the 2020 Oakbank Week (featuring a Family Food and Wine Day on Sunday, April 5) will include an events calendar to ensure the days between race days will feature other corporate and community activities, creating a week-long celebration in the Adelaide Hills.
