MARK Project to Host Kentucky Derby Jubilee at Union Grove Distillery

There are few American sporting events with the history and popularity of the Kentucky Derby. So, on Saturday, May 4th, The MARK Project will bring all the traditions and excitement of the Kentucky Derby to Union Grove Distillery beginning at 4pm.

Derby attire: Over the years the Derby has become just as much about the fashion as the racing. Yes, there's horse racing involved, but it’s derby day fashion that everyone is talking about long after the winning horse and jockey are crowned. An over-the-top, chic, or preppy hat is the key to any Derby attire and MARK will honor that tradition with a Special Prize for best hat.

Need a Hat? Well, we can direct you. If you feel creative, Bloom Fabric on Main Street Margaretville will be hosting a hat decorating workshop for more information contact Bloom directly at 845 586 6000 Also, Just Shop here in Arkville has a spectacular collection of festive bonnets and fascinators. We will be listing more locations to purchase a hat on our website markproject.org. Either way, be sure to don your derby hat on May 4th.

Lavish Food: Event goers can count on a spread of culinary delights provided by local restaurants, area farmers, and foodies. From Maple Bacon Bourbon Meatballs, to Fried Chicken and Country Ham and Biscuits, the delights of southern cooking will be a highlight of the event.

Live Music, Auction, and they’re off! Andy Cahill and Adam Ippolito will be on hand well into the evening with standards and light jazz and of course will lead the singing of My Old Kentucky Home. Daily Racing form stats delivered by Glen Pedersen, and Horse auction will all take place prior to the race being televised live on the big screen at Union Grove. A very special auction of VIP box seats at Saratoga including a tour of the paddock are up for grabs by the highest bidder.

All in all, this could quite possibly be the best place to watch the Derby shy of Churchill Downs, while supporting a valuable community organization. Tickets are $40 per person and include a complimentary Catskill Julep, Food, and Music. Need more info 845 586 3500
