Tailgating:  The Land Rover Tailgate parking permit provides access to your Reserved Tailgating parking space on Saturday, April 29, 2023, only.

Admission to Event:  Land Rover Tailgate Hangtag will be mailed to your shipping address on your order via Priority Mail.  Two (2) patrons entering in the park may enter with the tailgating vehicle. This change is to speed the entry for all tailgating vehicles before the 9 am deadline to be in place. Additional Ground Admission tickets will be available at a discounted price when purchased with the tailgating pass. All other riders in the vehicle must have a Saturday Ground Admission ticket if they are over 12 years old.  You must have a Hangtag for the vehicle. (Electronic tickets for Hangtags will not work for vehicle admission into the park.)  You will then be directed to your Reserved Tailgating Space.  You must be parked in your reserved space by 9 a.m.  No exceptions.  This is for the safety of our equine and human athletes, as well as spectators.

Dogs:  While dogs are welcome at Land Rover Kentucky, they must be kept on a leash, and with the exception of certified guide or assistance dogs, are not permitted in any Hospitality Tent or any of the Rolex Stadium Seats.

The Lexington Humane Society will offer a day care station where your dog will be looked after for a donation.  Dogs staying at the Lexington Humane Society station will need to have their vaccination record available to be shown to the caretakers. Don’t forget to bring toys, treats, favorite comfort item, etc. You will need a photo ID to pick up your dog (this is to ensure that no unauthorized person can pick up your dog).

There will be no special parking concessions for vehicles containing dogs, and distressed dogs will be removed from vehicles, by whatever means necessary, by the Lexington Humane Society/Event Security.  Please don’t allow dogs to foul areas in the Trade Fair, Sponsor Village or other public places.

Kentucky Horse Park Grounds Admission:  Your Grounds Admission Ticket also provides admission to the Kentucky Horse Park and the American Saddlebred Museum. This includes the Park’s Movies, Walking Farm Tour, Parade of Breeds, Hall of Champions and the International Museum of the Horse. The Horse-Drawn Tour, Carriage Rides and Riding Concession are each an additional cost.

Permanent public restrooms are located in the Rolex Stadium and in the Trade Fair area. In addition, there are portable restrooms throughout the park.
