Cairns Cup Packages & Event Calendar

The Red Beret Hotel Cairns Cup Carnival is a headline event of the Cairns social calendar and a major highlight each year for the local racing industry. In 2018 the Carnival will run from Saturday 4th August to Saturday 11th August.

We are excited to partner with IGA & the Leukaemia Foundation who will co-sponsor the first day of the Carnival with the Red Beret Hotel to raise much needed funds for the non-profit organisation. The Red Beret Hotel & IGA Leukaemia Cairns Cup Day 1 will be held on Saturday 4th August and the Red Beret Hotel Cairns Cup Day 2 on Saturday 11th August.

Boasting a carnival atmosphere with a winning trifecta of exhilarating racing, superb fashion and exciting company the Cairns Cup welcomes its community and visitors to beautiful Cairns and the Great Barrier Reef every year.

The Club is pleased to announce the 2018 Carnival Ambassadors, Maddi & Lloyd Wright.
