Del Mar gets social with third annual Tech Event

This season is one for the books at The Del Mar Racetrack. Last week the track crowned a new Miss Cougar Del Mar and sent one lucky gambler home $1.1 million richer. The flair and fun continues with a Jimmy Eat World concert, a T-shirt giveaway, the second Donuts Day and the third annual Cool As Ever Tech event, all in Del Mar’s third jam-packed week of racing and fun at the seaside oval.

Jimmy Eat World Four O’Clock Friday Concert – Friday, Aug. 12: After an afternoon of racing, the crowd will dance and sing along to Jimmy Eat World’s hits like “The Middle” and “Sweetness” as the sun sets over the Pacific Ocean.

Donuts Day – Saturday, Aug. 13: After its most successful Donuts Day in history last month, Del Mar will host its second Donuts Day at 8 a.m. Guests will enjoy free donuts, coffee and orange juice while getting a behind-the-scenes look at Thoroughbred racing from track announcer Trevor Denman and one of Del Mar’s top jockeys and trainers.

Cool As Ever Tech – Saturday, Aug. 13: Del Mar’s third Annual Cool as Ever Tech event will combine the American pastime of horseracing and the innovative world of social media. Guests can eat, drink, tweet, and take in the excitement that Del Mar is known for. Expect a real-time Twitter livestream, gadgets, goodies, giveaways and great networking. Tickets are free with online RSVP.

T-Shirt Giveaway – Saturday, Aug. 13: Guests attending the races on Aug. 13 will receive the coolest free T-shirt in Del Mar history. Men’s and women’s black crew neck tops with stylish Del Mar logos will be distributed while supplies last.
