Tables in the gorgeous VIP Club are located in a first-class pavilion with unobstructed views of the Grand Prix Ring, offering the perfect location to relax and watch some of the best show jumping athletes in the world compete. In the VIP Club, you can enjoy delicious food and beverages, including beer from Traverse City’s own North Peak Brewing Company, desserts from Grand Traverse Bagel & Bakery and wine and spirits from local wineries and distilleries.

Food will be served Friday–Sunday in the VIP Club every week, with the exception of WCHR week (Week II), where food services will be provided daily throughout the week.

As always, exhibitor satisfaction and comfort is a top priority for GLEF. Similar to previous years, GLEF will offer an exhibitor hospitality area in the pavilion next to the two main hunter rings, supplying snacks, pastries and breakfast items each day of competition from 7:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. This year, the exhibitor hospitality area is graciously sponsored by Talisman Stables (Week I), Greg Crolick Stables and Renaud Farm (Weeks II and III) and Oryana Natural Foods Market (Week IV).

In addition, the Marshall & Sterling Riders’ Lounge will be stationed next to the VIP Club overlooking the Grand Prix Ring with plenty of seating to watch rounds or relax after a day of showing.

The entry deadline for GLEF Weeks IV, V and VI is July 11. Entries are still being accepted for Weeks I, II and III based on stall availability and on a first come, first serve basis until sold out. Submit your stall reservations and entries for this year’s circuit as soon as possible here.
