As one of the top 5 sporting events in the region, the Queen’s Cup is the premiere, most anticipated social and sporting event on the Southeast’s calendar. No event in the Charlotte region gives you the experience you get at The Queen’s Cup. With everything from amazing tailgates, fancy hats and bow ties to powerful thoroughbreds galloping over 4’6″ obstacles. The Queen’s Cup is about sport, it’s fashion, it’s a tailgate extravaganza, it’s about friends and family in an annual gathering and it’s about fundraising. It is run by over 300 volunteers and benefits the Alzheimer's Association of Western NC. It is the most unique and rewarding volunteer experience you can have!
