Grand Horse Play

Mixing one part serious competition and one part lighthearted party, this event is all about sharing a love for adventure, fun and the challenging sport of polo.

Recently awarded the title of LGBTQ Sporting Event of the Year by Connect Sports, the 2020 International Gay Polo Tournament promises an unrivaled experience for players and spectators alike. On Saturday, April 4, enjoy fast-paced polo matches as six teams compete for three trophies. Dress to impress and plan on taking part in the quintessential divot stomp on Isla Carroll Field!

Terrific Tailgates
The polo action is just one aspect of the competition at the International Gay Polo Tournament. The tailgating scene is just as competitive, with spectators creating elaborate themed parties in the hopes of winning the coveted Best in Show prize.  You might stumble into a pop-up salon where the workers are in drag, a nightclub bumping DJ beats, or a wedding chapel where actual ceremonies are being performed. No theme is too over-the-top, and the party only stops when the last bottle of Champagne has been popped. 

In True Palm Beach Style
International Gay Polo Tournament weekend is bookended by fabulous parties in true Palm Beach style. Guests can once again look forward to Polotini Presents WIGSTOCK!, a hair-raising celebration held at IPC's members-only Mallet Grill on Friday, April 3. Enjoy live entertainment, a great buffet, hosted bar and plenty of dancing. The event is also a silent auction fundraiser for SAGE, a national advocacy and services organization that assists LGBTQ elders.

The weekend concludes with a lavish Sunday brunch at the Mallet Grill, where you can sip one more round of Bloody Marys before riding off into the sunset.
