The Derby Party

The Derby Party Fundraiser: Join us as the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame presents: The Derby Party, 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 2019 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 food 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.
