The Kentucky Derby continues to be the longest running sporting event in North America. Each year people descend upon historic Churchill Downs to feel the excitement of the “Run for the Roses” and the electricity in the air that accompanies the playing of “My Old Kentucky Home”. Last year, American Pharoah took the roses and cemented his place in history in front of 170,513 people which was the largest Derby crowd ever!
While the Kentucky Derby is the premiere event during Derby Week, there are also numerous galas and activities for locals and visitors alike.
On Thursday, Churchill Downs hosts the annual “Taste of Derby” which presents some of the finest cuisines, wines and cocktails from horse racing cities all over the country, featuring celebs and horse connections.
The Kentucky Oaks, which is always held the day before the Derby, is a race for the top three-year-old fillies. This “sister race” to the Derby is a leisurely and refined day at the races. Considered “Ladies Day” at the track, most guests wear shades of Pink.
After Oaks Day is finished, head the most popular and renowned Derby-Eve party in the world, the legendary Barnstable-Brown Gala! This event is a black-tie, red carpet affair in a fabulous mansion, complete with top celebrity guests from the film, television, music and sports industries. Widely considered one of the best parties, ever!
DerbyDeals.com offers seating in all areas of Churchill Downs for the Kentucky Derby. From the Grandstand to Millionaire’s Row, we have the ticket to match your expectations and budget.
Churchill Downs has a variety of seating locations. The Grandstand area typically offers bench type seating and is an area that is great for large gatherings and seeing the horses charge out of the gate on their way towards history. A step up from Grandstand seating is Clubhouse Box seats. Clubhouse Box seats are reserved tickets in six to eight person boxes which offer a bit more room, diverse amenities and chair back seating. Then, the next ticket levels are decidedly more luxurious and comfortable, featuring climate-controlled environments with access to upscale gourmet food and drinks, numerous wagering windows and private restrooms. The places to “see and be seen” are the Turf Club, Millionaire’s Row, Skye Terrace, Matt Winn Room, Trophy Room and the Jockey Club Suites.
