Description

The 2nd Annual Twin Cities Kentucky Derby Party celebrates our community of friends coming together in elegant hats, dresses, seersucker, cigars and Mint Juleps... honoring the traditions established at the venerable Churchill Downs!

The party kicks off at Noon. The Turf Club VIP Party in the Supperclub is sponsored by Audi Mpls/St.Paul and Cambria.
VIP ticket holders enjoy an Open Bar and beautiful Brunch Buffet until 3pm. This is a very limited ticket and will sell out fast! Grandstand ticket holders kick-of the party in the Brewhouse at noon with passed appetizers & mint julep tasters being passed by Redemption Liquor Ambassadors from 1-3pm.

Music starts at 2pm with Bluegrass music from "The High 48s" playing live on the outdoor Deck from 2-5pm. Mix and mingle with some of the most fun people in the Twin Cities. Enjoy the Brewhouse, the Deck or the Boathouse area.

5:24pm is Post time, and all eyes will turn to the screens for what is commonly referred to as the most exciting two minutes in sports, and also as "The Run for the Roses®!"

Following the Race the contest winners are announced. Past winners will tell you to dress Derby style to possibly win "Best Dressed", "Best Dressed Couple", "Best Hat" and more!
The 144th consecutive running of the Kentucky Derby will be the latest in a colorful history of horse racing. For more information on the history, see https://www.kentuckyderby.com/history/kentucky-derby-history . You will also see on the website lots of pictures to inspire your attire and attitude for the day's events at Birch's on the Lake Brewhouse & Supperclub!

After the race get down with the funky sounds of DJ Ronny D, and then let's dance off all those Mint Juleps in style! Don't forget that May 5th is also Cinco de Mayo, so stay for the Cindo de Mayo Dance Party in the Brewhouse. We can't wait to welcome you to a fun-filled day!

EVENT

The day will start with music worthy of any Churchill Downs cotillion. Mix, mingle, drink and eat with fun and well-dressed friends. At race-time all eyes will turn to the screens to watch the race.
