Queen’s Cup ‘Chase Festival

20th Anniversary, Saturday, April 25, 2015

Sponsorships, Hospitality Tents and Personal Space Licenses are on sale now!  Tailgate purchasing starts January 5, 2015


The Queen’s Cup is like no other sporting and social event in the Charlotte region. A Saturday afternoon in the country each spring is greeted with great anticipation.

The prestige of over $100,000 in purse money to the winning owners and the opportunity to bask in the glory of the winner’s circle is what it’s all about from the horse’s connections.

Beyond the excitement of the races, families and friends enjoy some fast-paced mingling and socializing each year. The Queen’s Cup annually solidifies business as well as personal relationships; and keeps both strong by bringing people together year after year.

The Queen’s Cup offers breathtaking views of the entire racecourse from the Lawn Boxes and Hospitality Tents on exclusive Member’s Hill to key tailgating spots throughout the entire racecourse.
