Set on the idyllic grounds where Hollywood celebrity and polo connoisseur Will Rogers used to play polo himself, this historic site is located just outside Rogers’ former private home. In reverence to the gaiety of the sport’s 1920s and 1930s heyday, guests are encouraged to don fashions inspired by that era, as well as traditional polo looks including daring hats for women and daytime suits for men.
TICKETS to attend the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic are $15, with the event benefiting the Will Rogers State Historic Park. Tickets must be purchased in advance and will not be sold onsite.
The event will support the preservation of the Will Rogers State Historic Park. Faced with narrowing state budgets and staff reductions, the park depends largely on public and private partnerships like The Will Rogers Ranch Foundation and The Will Rogers Polo Club, as well as private contributions, for financial support of preservation efforts.
