Are you looking forward to watching the most exciting two minutes in sports this year? The 2019 Kentucky Derby is happening on Saturday, May 4, and one of the best places to see the action in Saratoga is at The National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame’s annual Kentucky Derby Party.
Get Festive at the Museum’s Kentucky Derby Party
Now in its 5th year, The National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame’s Kentucky Derby Party will feature all kinds of festivities for guests to enjoy in anticipation of the popular race. From 3:30pm-7:00pm, highlights will include delicious craft beverage samplings from breweries, distilleries, and wineries, signature Kentucky-inspired dishes from local restaurants, music from Rich Ortiz and the East End Boys, a live airing of the Derby, and much more.
Guests are encouraged to dress to impress as Natalie Sillery of Saratoga Trunk will present an award for the most fashionable Derby attire at the event. There will also be a silent and live auction, a race day-inspired 50/50 raffle, and a giveaway courtesy of Impressions of Saratoga / The Dark Horse Mercantile.
If you’re interested in placing a bet on the Derby or other races, representatives from NYRA Bets will be on site with smart phones and tablets.
Funds raised from the party will support the racing museum’s educational mission and year-round programming and exhibits.
