About this event

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 exhibits, guests will enjoy entertainment in the prestigious Hall of Fame before a live airing of the 2023 Kentucky Derby.

This year we are celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Secretariat's Triple Crown victory! Guests are encouraged to dress in your best 1970s-themed Derby attire in his honor. An award for the most fashionable themed attire will be presented before post time. Also, there's always a chance to win with our race-day-inspired 50/50 raffle and silent auction!
