A benefit for Cape Fear Botanical Garden

The first of its kind for the Garden, this Kentucky Derby-inspired party & social event will be the right mix of fun and flair for those who want to get “down & derby!” Derby Day, presented by Highland Paving, will be held in the beautiful Cape Fear Botanical Garden with amazing views of flora and fauna, just two miles from downtown Fayetteville.

Expect the finest in fashion, food and entertainment while taking in “The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports”. Be sure to dress to impress for the Derby Hat & Dapper Dan Contest. Prizes will be awarded for the best dressed male and female party-goers who don out-of-this-world, derby attire and headwear. Enter the Win, Place, Show raffle or the Derby Stick Horse Race to win prizes!
