CANCELLED Iroquois Steeplechase
Please note, this event has expired.
Wear your spring pastels and top them off with your best hat for the 79th running of the Iroquois Steeplechase on the second Saturday in May at Percy Warner Park.
The Iroquois Steeplechase, benefiting The Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt, has been canceled for 2020. The highest priority of The Iroquois Steeplechase, a 501(c)(3) organization, is the safety of the patrons and participants. It has been determined by rules and regulations from our city officials and health department that social distancing will still be in place on our scheduled date of June 27. The magic of the Steeplechase is the camaraderie among friends from boxes packed with people to tailgaters hosting large group parties in the infield. Event organizers for the 79th annual event sponsored by Bank of America are planning a citywide safer-at-home celebration to honor Nashville’s grand tradition in place of the race meet that was to take place on June 27.
The Iroquois Steeplechase has been Nashville’s rite of spring since 1941, attracting more than 25,000 spectators annually to watch the best horses and riders in the world race over hurdles and timber on a manicured turf track.
Held the second Saturday of each May at Percy Warner Park, this iconic sporting event is Music City’s annual celebration of time‐honored traditions, Tennessee hospitality and Southern fashions. Guests enjoy areas for families, well‐appointed tents and individually organized tailgates where the emphasis is on race day pickings, larger‐than‐life hats, Honey Jack Juleps and crowd‐pleasing recipes.
Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt is the primary beneficiary of this event.
