Is there anything more decadent than putting on your Sunday best attire and heading to the horse races? For centuries, heading to the tracks was the epitome of high society events to attend, where royalty mixed and mingled with high society members enjoying the outdoors and a bit of sporting good fun. The Deighton Cup, now in its 10th year, is back this July 21 for a fabulous day of seeing and being seen at a charity event benefitting Variety – The Children’s Charity.
This summer, ditch the ordinary and quiche pool parties, brunches, bars, and circuit parties for something with a little bit of pomp and splendor of gay high society. Deck out to the nines in your finest bib and tucker and head to the horse races for an afternoon of sport, gambling and betting on the track, sipping gorgeously crafted mixologist created cocktails, and living the life of luxury. Vancouver’s most stylish summer event, the Deighton Cup returns July 21, 2018 with a decade of decadence, celebrating its 10thanniversary at the Hastings Racecourse.
What began by a group of friends with backgrounds in event production and hospitality as an answer to Vancouver’s limited calendar of events in the summer of 2008 has evolved into full blown philanthropic wonder party that sees thousands of people in attendance every year. Looking to build an event that ‘venerated sophistication, artistry, and most importantly, fun’, the Deighton Cup was born. Produced by The Social Concierge and the Parade Agency, the 10thannual Deighton cup will feature horse races, classic automobiles, food, fashion, an all-around good time.
Not only will the Deighton Cup feature horse races throughout the day, there will be multiple eateries hosting booths, the Style Stakes Best Dressed competition, the second annual Pearl Fanny Bay Oyster Shucking competition, champagne pairings, the 6thannual Cocktail Jockey Mixology Competition, a small museum’s worth of luxury and performance vehicles on display in the Miles End Motors Field of Dreams, and other amazing events and appearances.
The Deighton Cup is your answer for an event that is out of the ordinary but classy, stylish, and sophisticated and meant for those looking for an exceptional day of philanthropic fun. Make like English gentlemen and get your suits, loafers, fascinators, and top hats ready for a day on the town and at the horse races at the Deighton Cup.
