The Starting Gate – Home of the Deighton Cup 6th Annual Cocktail Mixology Competition

Festival Preview Event at a Surprise Venue featuring Cocktail Jockey

With just a few short months until the 10th Annual Deighton Cup, we’re ready to kick things off with the return of the official Deighton Cup preview event, The Starting Gate. Excitedly, this year’s launch party will also be the home of the Cocktail Jockey Mixology Competition, a tradition celebrating its sixth year.

We invite you to join us Saturday, May 5th, at a Secret Venue, for the running of the 144th Kentucky Derby. Traditional race day fare, fashion-forward friends, and craft cocktails will be the agenda for our celebration. Beyond the excitement of the Kentucky Derby, we will be bringing along a couple of very special mixologists to stir up traditional derby day libations and crowning one the 2018 Boothby Julep mixology champion! And if you’re interested in what to wear, take a look at our photo gallery from last year’s Starting Gate Preview Event and Cocktail Jockey.

Tickets for The Starting Gate are only $15 and include a welcome beverage. Book your spot through the link below.
