Derby Party FAQs

What should I wear?

The Kentucky Derby is a chance to show off your fanciest dress or most dapper suit. Hats and tails and fascinators will all fit right in. While we don’t have a required dress code, this is a great opportunity to dress up as fancy as you please!

What is included in my ticket?

Your ticket includes entrance to the party, food (heavy hors d’oeuvres), Beer, Wine and of course: Mint Juleps!

How do I participate in the auction?

You will need to download the GIVI app. You should have received a text or email with your unique auction access code. The Silent Auction preview will open May 1st at 6pm, and will open for bidding on May 3rd at 6pm. Email Ashley if you need assistance:

What will do at the party?

When you’re not raising a Mint Julep to toast, or eating some delicious food, we’ll be enjoying the following events:

Purchase tickets to take  a “chance” on your favorite horse(s) to win, place, or show during the race. One lucky ticket will be pulled of the top three finishers after the race.

“Buy” your own race horse in the mock horse auction. Find information on the horses on the program insert. The “owner” of the winning horse will receive 40% of the pot and the losing horse will receive 10%.

Elaborate hats are an iconic feature of Derby garb! Our secret judges are keeping their eyes peeled for a “Perfecta” (traditional elegance at its finest) and a “Trifecta” (fun & unique twist). Winners receive a CASH PRIZE!

Purchase a keepsake horseshoe and be entered to win the coveted trough full of assorted spirits—only 150 available for purchase! 

Get your “pull” and you’ll be entered to win a bottle of bourbon or a bourbon-themed item.

Players gather in the main room to guess if a coin flip will reveal heads or tails by placing their hands on their hat or…tail!  Last player standing wins 50% of the take

$10.00 gets you an entry into our jar of Derby essentials. Give us your best guess. The participant closer without going over will win 50% of the pot.

Visit each one of the stations at the Derby and find out how you can be a part of each of the games/events. Have the attendant at each station sign off on your card.

Once you have completed all of the activities, turn in your completed card at the registration table for a chance to win a bottle of bourbon worth at least $75.00

 Only cards with at least 6 signatures will be eligible.
