The Melbourne Cup Carnival's six feature race days combine to create a world-class event that encompasses the finest racing, entertainment, fashion, culture, food and wine all in one place, Flemington.

Sofitel Girls' Day Out celebrates the return of spring racing at Flemington. This day features four Group races, including the headline $400,000 Group 1 Makybe Diva Stakes.

The stars of spring are back on track for Turnbull Stakes Day, featuring the $502,500 Group 1 Turnbull Stakes. This day is considered a solid guide for predicting future Melbourne Cup Carnival champions.

AAMI Victoria Derby Day is the day for racing purists, with four Group 1 races on the card, and classic racewear with black and white being the prominent colour palette for women and the cornflower the official flower. As the curtain raiser of an unrivalled week of action, AAMI Victoria Derby Day is renowned as a must-attend on the social calendar.

On the first Tuesday in November, Emirates Melbourne Cup Day sits at the pinnacle of the Australian racing calendar and the focal point of the Melbourne Cup Carnival. It's the day to make your strongest fashion statement with an exotic or outrageous ensemble, and gentlemen don a yellow rose, the day's official bloom on their lapel.

The elegant atmosphere of Crown Oaks Day fittingly plays host to the national final of Myer Fashions on the Field Women's Racewear competition, as well as the $1 million Group 1 Crown Oaks for three-year-old fillies. It's the day for racegoers to trade the working day for a great day of racing trackside at Flemington.

Emirates Stakes Day concludes the Melbourne Cup Carnival with a day for the family. Free activities for children, including the Emirates Stakes Day Fashions on the Field competitions for youngsters and their families.
