Oakbank Easter Racing Carnival | 16 & 18 Apr 2022

Oakbank Easter Racing Carnival 2022

The Oakbank Easter Racing Carnival has been a family favourite for generations. Bring your own food and drinks onto the course, enjoy a picnic by your car and celebrate the Easter long weekend with family and friends.

The Easter Racing Carnival has been one of South Australia’s premier social and sporting occasions for almost 150 years, and the annual pilgrimage to the Adelaide Hills track is for many a family tradition that goes back generations. Racegoers can bring their own picnics and barbeques, and by the time racing begins the car park is awash with marquees, tents and barbeques as families and friends soak up the unique country racing atmosphere.


Easter is back at Oakbank in 2022 in more ways than one with the Carnival returning to the traditional fixture of racing and merriment on Easter Saturday 16 April and Easter Monday 18 April.  Jockeys will be handing out chocolate treats along the fence of the home straight near the finish line between Race 2 and 3 on Easter Saturday and Easter Monday.  Listen out for the announcement on-course to say hello to your favourite jockeys and grab an Easter treat.

There will truly be fun for all at this picturesque Adelaide Hills racecourse, including:

  • BYO picnicking in the middle of the track
  • A variety of great food vans including coffee, savoury snacks, meals, and indulgent sweets
  • Multiple bars stocked with chilled locally crafted SA beverages and crowd pleasing favourites
