New Elements Fuse With Old Fan Favorites For A Day Of Polo and Partying Like No Other In The World
With a little more than four months to go — The Bentley Scottsdale Polo Championships: Presented by Talking Stick Resort, is proud to announce the return of America’s most attended polo event to WestWorld of Scottsdale on Saturday, November 4th with a new lineup of star-studded teams, cool on-site activations and events, and brand new for 2023 – a Sunset Concert and party to keep fans entertained for the most distinct day in world polo.
The Sunset Concert will be organized by top concert promoters and feature a nationally recognized DJ. It will be staged within the footprint of the Riot House Polo DayClub during the day’s fourth and final match as the sun begins to set on the McDowell Mountains. More details will be announced in the coming weeks and organizers say it is the event’s first attempt to emulate the success of the Waste Management Phoenix Open’s Bird’s Nest. If the concept proves successful the Scottsdale Polo Party may look to expand musical elements later into the night and even on additional days in future years.
Sponsorship opportunities and tickets are currently available for the 2023 Bentley Scottsdale Polo Championships at ThePoloParty.com.
Last year some 12,144 fans turned out for Scottsdale’s incomparable Polo Party and the state’s top selling champagne event as preparations continue to make 2023 an even bigger and better experience for polo revelers.
