The ‘Top Events of Switzerland’ association promotes the image of an innovative, dynamic Switzerland thanks to the synergy of international top events in the worlds of culture and sports. Art Basel, Montreux Jazz Festival, Locarno Film Festival, Lucerne Festival, Weltklasse Zürich, European Masters Crans Montana, Ski World Cup Wengen and White Turf St. Moritz are the best possible guarantee of up-to-date events hosted with excellence.
White Turf, a unique, exclusive, top-class event with exciting horse-racing, gourmet catering, lively music and inspiring art exhibitions, all taking place in winter sunshine on the frozen lake among the stunningly beautiful, snow-capped mountains of St Moritz.
This spectacular, major event is not just one with Champagne on ice for the rich and beautiful but an annual event where race-horse owners, trainers and jockeys from all over the world meet up as well as being an unmissable fixture on the calendar for local people.
It is thanks to the sponsors as well as the municipality of St Moritz and the local tourist board, who have been supporting White Turf for decades, to make this top-class race-meeting possible.
In addition, members of the organising committee along with their staff and countless volunteers ensure that the 35,000 visitors who attend these unique race-meetings on 12th, 19th and 26th February can enjoy a flutter, cheer on the horses they have backed and enjoy top-quality catering in a number of marquees put up specially on the frozen lake. What is more, visitors have the opportunity of winning holidays in luxury hotels on far-off tropical islands.
If you have a passion for racing, or just want to spend an unforgettable day out at a unique event in spectacular winter surroundings, make sure you join us in February in St Moritz.
