Celebrate the Kentucky Derby in style

Leading up to the most exciting two minutes of our year, we celebrate the Kentucky Derby with signature events.

The Mint Julep Sunset Social is a high-end culinary experience curated by Mint Julep held the Thursday before the Kentucky Derby each year. Two nights before the big horse race after Thurby, we head to a picturesque Hermitage Farm for a sunset horse farm tour, family-style Southern dinner, drinks and dancing. For those looking to stay downtown during Thurby, you can attend the Thurby Dinner event at Four Roses Bourbon Barrel Loft.

We also organize three different Kentucky Derby Week public tours that you can book online visiting Horse Country, Bourbon Country and the Best of Kentucky.

A number of options for customized tours and VIP transportation are available the week of the Kentucky Derby. Our Experience Coordinators can build your Derby week itinerary seeing all the sights, tasting the best bourbon and visiting top horse farms.
