Dress Code

As King Edward VII famously declared, the Qatar Goodwood Festival is a 'garden party with racing tacked on.' This unique, quintessentially English 'Goodwood' style is channelled by guests through their fashion choices and as a result the feel of the event is smart, but never stuffy. Guests in our private boxes & hospitality venues are required to dress smartly and encouraged to dress fabulously. Men must wear a jacket and tie, while ladies can wear a floaty or floral dress, an elegant top and trouser/skirt combination that is suitable for England in summer.
