The Red Beret Hotel Cairns Cup Carnival Fashions on the Field competitions are the prime showcase of Racewear in Far North Queensland.

Sashes are as hotly contested as the racing prizes with race goers competing to make a good impression and of course share in the amazing prizes. This year winners will share in $4000 worth of cash prize and over $6000 in vouchers over the Carnival.

The Club is excited to welcome a new naming rights sponsor, Oceana Walk Arcade for Cup Day and continue our relationship with Nautilus Aviation as the major sponsor on Ladies Day. We are also excited to continue our relationships with Pure Synergie Skin Store, Cairns Precision Dental, Tea Lily, Wedding Treasures, The Eye Boutique, Tokunai Hair, AJ Hackett Cairns, Mark Dodge Motoring, Fascinators.net and welcome our new sponsors Future Computer, Boatshed Cairns, FAmazing Fashion & Beauty and Mercedes Gonzalez Travel.

The Club is also excited to partner with the Mackay Airport Beach Horse Races where they have kindly donated the Grand Prize on Ladies Day! Our Contemporary Lady and Classic Lady winners will vie for the ‘VIP Fashions on the Sand Experience!’. This includes return airfares & accommodation for two to Mackay for two nights, return accommodation transfer to the event, entry into the ‘Fashions on the Sand’ competition (first prize is flights and accommodation for two to Melbourne Cup and entry into FOTF) and entry for two into the exclusive Fashion Marquee!

Both days of Fashions on the Field are now registered competitions. Fashion spotters and registration desks are at the entry to the Garden Area along the main pathway and outside the Silks Pavilion.
