Montpelier Race

You are invited to join F&M Bank for an exclusive experience at our tent as we enjoy the 87th running of the Montpelier Hunt Races!

Held on the picturesque grounds of Montpelier, our premier location right on the rail near the Start/Finish line will provide the perfect, private vantage point for the event and all its festivities.  Join us any time between 10am and 4pm to take in the races, explore the vendor fair and tour James Madison’s home.  We will provide breakfast, lunch and drinks for our guests.

Montpelier Hunt Races hosts seven races. The first race post time is 12:30 PM and the last race usually begins around 4:30PM. The first race is run on the flat track and six are over fences. Most races are over 2 miles and the horses make over two turns around the course.  You’ll be up front and center at our private section of the rail to view the race as they go by, and we will have a closed-circuit television to watch the progress in action.  To view all the details and exciting offerings of the day, please visit the event website at
