Annual Polo Classic to Benefit Ride to the Olympics Foundation

This October, the 5th Annual Atlanta Fashion & Polo Classic Weekend returns to Bouckaert Farm, 10045 Cedar Grove Rd. The event is the brainchild of Miguel Wilson, an award-winning menswear designer.

All proceeds from the event will benefit the Ride to the Olympics Foundation. The nonprofit provides support to kids who desire to pursue equestrian activities, especially those who normally wouldn’t have the opportunity due to socio-economic obstacles.

The event promises complimentary gourmet food options, signature cocktails, party tents, live music, cigar lounges, two polo games, equestrian exhibitions, and a fashion experience. Guests are encouraged to wear their best derby attire. 

“Over the last five years, we’ve proven that the citizens of Atlanta demand an exclusive and luxurious experience,” said Miguel Wilson, founder of the Atlanta Fashion & Polo Classic. “Though this event is a major fundraising effort for the Ride to the Olympics Foundation, it is also a display of Black excellence at its highest level. We are intentional about cultivating an elevated experience through the use of Black businesses and talents to display our culture at its apex.” 

The event is held over three days. The “Black Tie Experience” will take place on Friday, Oct. 7. Both the “Polo & Pumps Brunch and Day Party” and “Cocktails and Cigars Under the Stars” are on the itinerary for Saturday, Oct. 8. And the event will conclude on Sunday, Oct. 9 with the Annual Atlanta Fashion & Polo Classic.

Special guests include: Business Mogul and Fashion Designer Lisa Nicole; Actor Palmer Williams Jr.; Grammy Nominated Songwriter, Singer and Producer Eric Roberson; Singer Tony Terry; Rapper Pastor Troy; Bar One Entrepreneur and Atlanta Housewives Cast Member Peter Thomas; DJ Mark Battle; DJ Bombshell; and Recording Producer Drummer Boy, among others.

The event is sponsored by Bentley Atlanta, The Corbett Family, Belaire Brands, Uncle Nearest Premium Whiskey, Whiskey Wright Distillery, Sukari Spirits, One Sound Entertainment and Future Outlook Group, LLC. Tickets can be purchased at
