The concept of getting friends together to enjoy the festivities of what the Durban July has to offer is key to the event’s success. The Pink Punter's "cult-like" popularity saw it outgrow the picnic stalls of the Greyville Racecourse in Durban and led the event to Johannesburg in 2008. 

Ironically, moving the event to Joburg was an overwhelming success, with numbers swelling from 350 guests in 2008 to 2000 in 2012. During this time, the Pink Punter has been refined into a professional operation encompassing everything that's great about the Durban July  one of South African’s finest horseracing events. 

2013 sees Pink Punter moving venues once again to accommodate all those party-goers who have missed out in the past. The new venue at Montecasino allows for an enhanced Pink Punter experience while still maintaining the outdoor feel of past events.
