Derby Week Tours

The ultimate Kentucky Derby experience — the 150th running of the Kentucky Derby in 2024

The week of the Kentucky Derby is one of the most popular times to visit the Bluegrass State! Each year, thousands of visitors descend on Louisville for the horse race, mint juleps and Kentucky hospitality.

Typically held the first Saturday in May, the Kentucky Derby is an iconic Kentucky tradition.  Make the most of your time in Derby Country by planning a full Derby week itinerary visiting bourbon distilleries, horse farms and attending Derby-themed events. Public Derby tours are available Wednesday through Monday of Derby week, but customized Derby experiences or private transportation to Churchill Downs can be arranged any day of Derby week!
