Come celebrate the 20th Annual University Row at the Virginia Gold Cup! 

In 2018, University Row will be celebrating its 20th season, and it promises to be another exciting year at The Plains!

This year’s University Row will host alumni from more than 30 local chapters, totaling over 500 guests! 

University Row is regarded as one of the largest inter-alumni social events in the Mid-Atlantic region. Join us and network with college & university alumni from all over the U.S. while enjoying top shelf drinks, food, and a front row seat to exciting races all day long!

All tickets to University Row provide access to our exclusive tent area, our delicious buffets, an open bar with premium liquor, beer, and wine selections, and, of course, the races themselves. 

Most tickets also include your luxury transportation to and from the Row, unless you opt for a tent-only ticket and buy a parking pass. 

Since we treat all our guests like VIPs, University Row provides the best value at the Virginia Gold Cup!
