Kentucky Derby Day

ky derby

The annual celebration of one of the world’s great sporting events is a day long party—and you don’t need to go to Kentucky to be part of it!

Derby Day at Arlington is all about world famous Mint Juleps, live music, and good times with great friends! You can watch and wager on the Kentucky Derby simulcast and other live races throughout the day.

We'll be hosting our annual Derby Day Hat Contest after the third race so be sure to get fancy, creative and fun with your hat choice and enter for your chance to win some amazing prizes.  PLUS, one lucky guest will be chosen to make the ULTIMATE BET- $1,000 to make a win bet on the 139th running of the Kentucky Derby!

The first 1,500 guests to purchase Derby Day tickets online and in advance will receive an official 2013 Kentucky Derby glass. Guests who have purchased tickets online can redeem for their Derby glass at the East Paddock redemption counter.

If you're looking for an exclusive red carpet experience - check out the Derby Party Zone.  Located just past the finish line in the Marquee Tents, your Derby Party Zone ticket includes an all inclusive drink and food package, a live DJ, commemorative Kentucky Derby Mint Julep glass, and a Daily Racing Guide.
