If you are trying to sell a ticket, or want to search for tickets by contacting someone unable to use his or her ticket for Race Day, we recommend that post to our Facebook event page, or on our Row Facebook Page.  If you have any questions, please email us at info@universityrow.org.

NOTE: Once Tent Bus tickets sell out, we will likely still have a few Tent Only tickets available. If you buy Tent Only tickets you can buy a Parking Pass from us or at any Harris Teeter store, or you can buy a bus ticket to/from Gold Cup from Lindy Promotions, the official Virginia Gold Cup bus transportation provider.

Types of Tickets

  • Tent/Bus tickets: Our most popular option. This all-inclusive ticket includes charter bus transportation to and from Arlington or DC, plus your admission to University Row. The most common of the tickets.
    • When purchasing a tent/bus ticket, select Clarendon (leaving from Whitlow’s on Wilson, 2854 Wilson Blvd in Arlington; or Lou’s City Bar, 1400 Irving St NW)
  • Tent-Only ticket: Includes admission to University Row, but does not include transportation. You’re on your own when it comes to getting there and getting home. You can buy a parking pass from University Row, or through Harris Teeter.
  • Car Pass: Allows vehicle access with up to five passengers on Gold Cup’s grounds. Each passenger will need to have a Tent-Only ticket to get into University Row.

Your Pass to University Row

University Row is an area along the North Rail at the Virginia Gold Cup where admittance is by ticket only. It is hosted by more than 30 different alumni chapters. Your admission to University Row provides access to every anchor tent, not just the school you purchased it with – feel free to mix, mingle, and network!

Each Anchor is allotted a number of tickets that they will make available to their alumni and the alumni of their partner schools. As this is an alumni-oriented event, initial sales are usually made available through each school’s local alumni chapter. Tickets may also be purchased directly from University Row.

Parking Passes

There are a limited number of parking passes available for those who are planning to arrange their own transportation to The Virginia Gold Cup and University Row. These are physical passes that need to be clearly displayed on your windshield for entry to the grounds at Great Meadow. All Parking Pass will be available for pick up at the Virginia Gold Cup Will-Call desk at Great Meadow on Saturday, May 5th. Will Call is at the filling station across from the main Great Meadow Entrance.
