Posted by Jaclyn Harris on Tue, Jul 15, 2014 @ 12:27 PM

DerbyExperiencesIt’s common knowledge that attending the Kentucky Derby is as much about the official Kentucky Derby parties as it is the horse racing itself. Derby weekend is jam packed with parties popping off each evening to celebrate the high profile race being held at Churchill Downs. A-list celebrities, athletes and everyone who is anyone in horse racing makes the list to be at these top notch parties.

But what about you? Is getting an invite possible? And what about the Kentucky Oaks and the Kentucky Derby? After all, you don’t want to skimp out on your experience at the track just to be able to afford to go to a Derby party. So what’s the solution?

My friends, it’s called the bundle affect and it’s coming your way via Official Ticket Packages direct from Churchill Downs!

For instance, you can receive an invite to the prestigious Taste of Derby™ party held on the eve of the Kentucky Oaks and still have access to an exclusive in-track hospitality venue complete with VIP amenities! How? With the Official Orange Grandstand Taste of Derby™ Party Package!

Keep on reading to take a look at the Taste of Derby™ Party, see what your view would be from the Grandstand on race days, and learn about the premium amenities you’d receive with the Orange Grandstand Party Package!

The Taste of Derby™ Party

DerbyExperiencesBeginning the entire Kentucky Derby weekend, the Taste of Derby™ is held on Thurs. night, the eve of the Kentucky Oaks. Masterful chefs will all gather in one venue to create dishes from popular horse racing destinations across the country! You’ll be invited to mingle with some of the hottest names in Hollywood while sampling a variety of these exquisite dishes.

In addition to the stars and the delicious food, you’ll also have access to a premium open bar and live music will be playing throughout the evening, so bring your dancing shoes!

And what’s even cooler than the fact you’ll be walking the Red Carpet? You’ll also be contributing to a fantastic cause!

The Taste of Derby™ provides partial proceeds to contribute to help fight hunger in the United States. So while you’re having the time of your life at a high profile Kentucky Derby party, you’ll also be giving back to your neighborhoods.

This evening is the perfect combination of charity, cuisine, racing, and style!

The View from the Orange Grandstand

Orange Grandstand packages offer a spectacular view of the track from the Grandstand. Located in Sections 323-325 on the third floor of the Grandstand, you’ll have unobstructed views of the final turn, the final stretch and the finish line!


And with the world’s largest HD video board located right in front of the Grandstand, you’ll have impeccable views of the horses racing, even when they’re on the backstretch out of your direct line of sight.

Hospitality: the Affirmed Lounge

One of the biggest regrets first time attendees make is not getting hospitality access. What many don’t realize without first attending the Kentucky Derby, is that race days are long days. With 12 races on Kentucky Oaks day and 13 races on Kentucky Derby day, you will truly spend the entire day inside Churchill Downs.

You’re going to want to take some time to escape from the Kentucky elements and unwind with your group. Hospitality offers just that, an escape, and it bundles together anything and everything you might want at the track eliminating the need for you to make expensive food and drink purchases throughout the day.

DerbyExperiencesWith Orange Grandstand Packages, you’ll receive a VIP ticket granting you access to the Affirmed Lounge hospitality area, located just inside the Kentucky Derby Museum and down the stairs from your seating location in the Grandstand.

Here, you’ll be able to meet celebrity jockeys, enjoy complimentary beer, wine, soft drinks, and gourmet food buffets, and listen to live entertainment. There will also be simulcast TV coverage of the festivities taking place around the track inside the Affirmed Lounge so even though you’ve stepped inside, you won’t miss a beat of the action. Additionally, there are private wagering stations located within the hospitality venue eliminating your need to fight the crowds at the tellers located inside the Grandstand lobby area.

On-site trip directors from Derby Experiences will also be present throughout your trip to assist you in any way, and you’ll receive a VIP Fast Access Pass granting you a quicker entrance to Churchill Downs on race days through Gate 10.
