For us in the Hamptons, August is the height of the summer season – parties, benefits, gala fundraisers of every size and sort. It’s mind-blogging how we squeeze everything into 5 short weeks (we include Labor Day weekend).

By far the biggest event is the Hampton Classic, one of the country’s largest equestrian events (1,600 horses+) – a sporting event and the most extravagant social happening of the season. Now in its 35th year, this year’s president of the Classic is our friend and former Goldman Sachs colleague Dennis Suskind. And published just in time for Classic week, pick up the latest edition of The Hamptons, a guide to the sophisticated properties of the area from Norma Reynolds Sotheby’s International Real Estate.

About 50,000 spectators will attend the spectacle from August 29-September 5. That’s a lot of people – and a good reminder to everyone that the crowds create a vibrant, chaotic energy in our area. So shine your shoes, put on your best smile and dust the windowsills! Embrace the chaos and merriment – those who descend on us in August sustain we who call the Hamptons home. It’s estimated that the Classic generates over $100 million in local revenue!

Here at Hamptons Creative Group, we revel in the 24/7 madness of August and the opportunities to connect with friends old and new that it provides. Our motto “We Create Success Stories” means we’re in sync with the rhythms of the creative marketing, branding and advertising world. Our work is classic work – helping authors showcase their creativity, providing client marketing/branding, and now connecting people with their audiences via web and mobile marketing.
