The 2018 Steeplechase of Charleston

the return of one of charleston’s oldest traditions

The Steeplechase of Charleston returns this November to close out the 2018 National Steeplechase Association Fall Racing Circuit. With deep roots in southern heritage, this Charleston tradition began in 1792 and will be ushered into its new era with the addition of The Steeplechase Gala and a weekend packed full of activities around Charleston. The family-friendly Sunday event will feature five high-stakes races with $100,000 in purse money and coveted titles on the line. The infield will feature a VIP Chalet, vendor village, food trucks, live entertainment and activities for the whole family. So pack your coolers, grab your big hats and bowties and we’ll see you at the races!

The Steeplechase of Charleston is a National Steeplechase Association sanctioned Race Meet
