The most stylish event of the summer returns July 2024

The Cup, formerly known as “The Deighton Cup,” is set to return on Saturday, July 20th – promising a day of unparalleled fashion, summer fun and entertainment at the iconic Hastings Racecourse.

Steeped in a tradition of fun and renowned for its sophistication, The Cup has long been hailed as one of Canada’s premier summer events. This year’s edition aims to elevate the experience even further, with a deeper focus on style and culinary excellence.

Kicking things off, this year’s Cocktail Jockey competition at The Cup takes a nostalgic turn with a 70’s inspired Pop-Up Speakeasy, bringing together top mixologists in an exclusive 200-person lounge. This unique space not only showcases special guest mixologists crafting custom signature cocktails, but also embraces a retro-cool vibe with visual art installations and classic vinyl DJ sets. The space is designed to offer guests a stylish retreat, complete with handcrafted libations and soul-stirring music, encapsulating the essence of a bygone era.

Adding to the excitement, The Cup is set with an electrifying lineup, headlined by celebrity DJ Brandi Cyrus, whose energetic presence promises to bring the good vibes. The addition of the ever-cool electronic duo Youngbombs, fresh off their Juno Award nomination for Breakthrough Group of the Year, guarantees a fun-filled performance that will keep the summer energy buzzing on the concourse.

Culinary enthusiasts will be delighted with the addition of a unique menu as part of The Cup’s new Michelin Star Trackside dining experience, presented by San Pellegrino in collaboration with the Michelin-starred restaurant Kissa Tanto. Nestled in the heart of Chinatown and under the helm of Chef-owner Joël Watanabe, Kissa Tanto offers a chic ambiance reminiscent of mid-century Tokyo’s jazz cafes.

A creative haven for Vancouver’s fashion scene, The Cup sets the stage for attendees to showcase their most lavish and fanciful outfits, reflecting the event’s chic essence. This year, the expanded Fashion Marketplace makes its debut, enhancing the fashion-forward experience with over 25 lifestyle brands. This dynamic ‘shop and sip’ zone not only hosts the anticipated Style Stakes Fashion Competition stage, but also features a beauty bar and Style Stakes portrait studios, making it the prime spot for discovering the latest must-have accessories to complement any look.
