Enclosures

France Galop describes each area as follows:

Area 1: Winning Post enclosure

The Winning Post Enclosure – which includes entry to the first floor of the Grandstand and the tiered seating around the presentation ring – brings you right to the heart of the event.

Watch the races at the finishing post, admire the horses as they parade around the paddock before and after each race, and applaud the winners as they accept their prize, as well as enjoying access to the Arc Gardens and Village.

Winning Post Gold

Allocated seating and backstage access take you to the very heart of the racing. Includes a private lounge with a bar and snack bar, so you can watch the racing action from the edge of the course and parade ring while enjoying plenty of refreshments.

Area 2: Arc Gardens

Racing, refreshments and music: the perfect blend for a day at the races!

Watch the races from our pop-up British-style pub, where you can sample a selection of beers and enjoy something to eat in the French capital’s largest open-air food court.  

There are plenty of other surprises in the Arc Garden: champagne bars, betting windows, introductions to betting, race simulators, giant screens, shops, terminals to recharge your phone… It’s THE place to mingle at the Qatar Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe, for a unique and festive racing experience.

Guests in the Arc Garden also have access to the Arc Village.

Area 4: Arc Village

"In this private enclosure on the inside edge of the course, you can relax on the comfy deckchairs and bean bags and grab some refreshments from the nearby food trucks and bars.

Watch the world’s greatest horse race, the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe, and sway to the sound of the DJ’s tunes between races. As soon as the racing has finished for the day, we’ll turn the music up and continue the celebrations on the dance floor!

You can enjoy a whole host of entertainment throughout the day, such as posing by the weigh-in scales in a special photo shoot! The racecourse is also fitted out with phone charging stations, to make sure you can stay connected all day long".

Paris

On the first Saturday in October, in all parts of the city, artists will be proposing installations, exhibitions, concerts performances, trails, staged scene sets and creations that explore all facets of contemporary art and offer a new view of the city.

Public transport stays open all night so that spectators can design their own route among the dozens of avant-garde projects of international artists. The Nuit Blanche was first organized in 2002, and, like the Fête de la Musique, it has spread around the world to other cities in France and other European capitals, a proof of its popularity and relevance today.
