Tailgating - With Umbrella Table

Meadows Rail


The Meadows Rail tailgating is located on the inside rail at turn 4 and into the chute. It has viewing of the horses as they race down the hill, around turn 4 towards the hurdle and the finish line. Meadows also provides front-row viewing of the start of opening ceremonies, which is a show all unto itself. Meadows Rail is a single row of tabled tailgate spaces with close proximity to all infield activities.  PLEASE NOTE: As the tailgates get closer to and into the chute, there will be viewing obstructions up the hill, but that never kept tailgaters from having a great time in Meadows Rail. Remember: We do run rain or shine, so absolutely no refunds.

The Meadows Rail package includes:

  • 2 General Admission badges
  • 1 vehicle pass to park at your tailgating area
  • One 4ft round table with white linens, and a 9ft umbrella
  • 15’x40′ assigned space that accommodates 14 (all guests over 12 years of age must have a General Admission badge)
  • Chairs are not included and must be purchased separately through Party Reflections or you may bring your own

Additional Parking:  With a General Admission badge, your guests may park for free in the General Admission Lot and take the free shuttle to your tailgating space. (Limited onsite shuttles pick up and drop off ONLY at designated shuttle stops.)  You do have the option of purchasing a Green Spring Parking pass for your guests at $75.00 per vehicle.  The Green Spring Lot is a convenient parking area and provides a short walk to the Meadows.  Limit 2 per tailgate space. Please note:  A Green Spring Parking pass ordered through the website will NOT allow entry for a van/bus/or limo.  Please call the office at 704.843.7070 if you need a parking pass for a van/bus/or limo.  

2023 RAFFLE: We’re raising funds once again for Alzheimer’s and you can help.  The Queen’s Cup Steeplechase presents the 3rd Annual WIN-PLACE-SHOW Alzheimer’s Raffle with the grande prize of $10,000!

Space Assignments:  Unless you own a PSL (Private Space License), your tailgating space will be randomly assigned and will be noted on your parking pass.

Your party may order up to four spaces in a tailgating area. Each tailgate space along with any additional badges or Green Spring Parking passes must be added separately to your cart. Spaces purchased in a single order will automatically be placed side by side unless requested otherwise.
