Celebrate this Melbourne Cup holiday by doing something cruelty-free, but just as fun. Here’s where to say Nup to the cup this November.

They will also be donating their tips to the coalition for the protection of racehorses.
This is the 3rd annual Nup to the Cup event at Red Sparrow. The money will be raised for The Coalition for the Protection of Racehorses.
This year is set to be bigger than ever with their friends next door at Fixation Brewing Co joining them for lunch at The Incubator. More room, beers, DJ’s, Raffle, and pizza. Sounds like a good party.
Just because you aren’t going to watch some horses run around a field doesn’t mean you can’t still have fun! Evies are putting on a special bottomless drag brunch, you will want to book ahead for this one. They will also be raising funds for Save a Horse Australia so bring some coin.
Play some games, win some prizes, eat some vegan food, DJs from 4pm ’til LATE.

Fashuns on the Field | Melbourne Cup Protest!
For the 4th year literally running the Coalition for the Protection of Racehorses and Tenfingerz are joining forces to bring you Fashuns on the Field.
Bringing together two of Melbourne’s favourite past times – fashion and sport, they deliver to you a free alternative to the old ‘Race that stops a nation’, to say ‘NUP TO THE CUP!’
Come protest the Cup! And show regular racegoers what cruelty-free fun looks like.
Come witness the fabulously fashionable competitors as they battle out for the grand prize or enter and compete for the grandest of prizes yourself!
And here’s a little video that we are huge fans of, purely because it’s just some facts that people should know about horse racing.
