Beyond this, your ticket will also give you the chance to be named The Style Stakes ‘Best Dressed’ and have your name engraved on The Deighton Cup if you win. And luckily, you still have plenty of time to work on your killer outfit. On the day, stop by the Style Stakes area at the track to enter yourself into the fashion race, or keep your eyes out for the roaming judges attending the days events. 

So yeah, you could say that you’ll feel like a movie star at the The Deighton Cup, one of Vancouver’s most stylish, highly-anticipated events of the year.

Besides the draw of horse racing and top-notch fashion, for the first time since it’s 2013 edition, the festival is expanding beyond its single day event into a multi-day celebration. Because of the growth and overall demand for the event The Deighton Cup will be moving their world-class mixology competition, Cocktail Jockey, to it’s very own event offsite from Hastings Racecourse, prior to Deighton Cup on July 22nd. Cocktail Jockey upgrade tickets are not yet available, but will be announced in the coming weeks.
