Off to the Races at the Kentucky Derby
Whether you’re in the thick of it at Churchill Downs or you’re planning to watch the Kentucky Derby here in the Windy City, it’s an occasion you won’t want to miss. Put on your finest Spring fashions (and don’t forget that hat!) and meet us at the track.
Here are some of our favorite Derby parties, all around the nation.
Derby Day at Arlington Park
Gates open at 10:30 am for a day-long Derby celebration. First post is at 1:20 pm, with races every 30 minutes. Enjoy a Mint Julep and enjoy the Derby – Chicagoland style.
The Godfrey’s 5th Annual Kentucky Derby Viewing Event
Hang out at the Godfrey Hotel’s rooftop lounge in your best Derby Day attire in a private booth. Southern comfort in the heart of Chicagoland.
The Trifecta Gala
A black tie event at the new Omni Hotel in Louisville. The Trifecta Gala isn’t specific to the Derby itself, it’s a staple event at most major sporting events throughout the year.
Great Balloon Festival
The festival isn’t centered around the Derby itself, but it’s still a lot of fun. A festival of five events leading up to the big race, it’s a tradition started in 1973.
Wherever you decide to spend your Derby day, contact your CUI concierge to secure your plans.
