Alexandra Park dedicates night to Chinese New Year

Alexandra Park is celebrating Chinese New Year 2017 with a dedicated harness racing night on Friday, 10 February.

“Alexandra Park has been the home of the Auckland Trotting Club since 1890 and Chinese Aucklanders are a bit part of our story. Hence we’ve decided to host a special evening showcasing traditional entertainment and a delicious all-you-can-eat Chinese buffet dinner,” says Joel Reichardt, Sales & Marketing Manager at Alexandra Park.

He says tickets are selling fast for the plentiful Chinese-themed hospitality which will take place from 5.30pm at Alexandra Park’s premier 5th floor function venue, Top of the Park.

As well as the entertainment and sumptuous buffet, attendees will also enjoy an outstanding view of all the exciting harness racing action under lights below. Top of the Park will be beautifully themed and decorated in celebration of the Year of the Rooster.

Dining packages are just $65pp for the buffet only, and $99 for the all-inclusive beverage package. To secure tickets phone (09) 630-5660 or visit

“This is set to be a fantastic evening so we’re really encouraging people to get their colleagues, family and friends together and come along.

“Alexandra Park has long been known for having the best Chinese restaurant in Auckland, Grand Park. Now our own first-class chefs have designed a Chinese buffet menu which is not only comprehensive but will be packed with delicious flavours and modern twists.

“We get great reviews about our food and we’re expecting exceptional feedback on our Chinese New Year offering. February 10 is not only set to be a fun night, but we’re also offering great value. Given the success of the ticket sales so far, I suspect we’ll be doing it all again next year,” says Mr Reichardt.

Alexandra Park is set to roll out other internationally-themed evenings throughout the year, and on every race night general admission, car-parking and race books are free.

The 2017 Oaks & Derby Festival is set for 3 and 10 March.
