Event description


Join us on Saturday, May 6th as the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame presents:

The Derby Party

Join us at this Kentucky themed fundraiser featuring delicious samplings of local brews and spirits, as well as signature Kentucky inspired dishes from local restaurants.

While exploring the Museum and its local connection, guests will enjoy entertainment in the prestigious Hall of Fame before a live airing of the 2017 Kentucky Derby.

Guests are encouraged to dress to impress, as an award for the most fashionable Derby attire will be presented. Also, there's always a chance to win with our race-day inspired 50/50 raffle and silent auction!

The National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame is excited to offer an authentic experience with a unique twist for the racing and foodie enthusiast. The Museum is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization, and all proceeds from this year’s event support the Museum’s educational mission and allow for exciting exhibits and programs all year round.
