Take a look at your available options to bump up your Kentucky Derby experience!
Official Derby Parties
The Kentucky Derby weekend is known for the lavish parties it hosts, and last year, Derby Experiences even hosted its first official Kentucky Derby party, the Fillies & Lilies Party featuring Wynonna Judd!
Take a look at the confirmed parties coming down the pipeline, and remember, through Derby Experiences, you can get a VIP invite to any or all of them!
Transportation & Parking
Considering not including your transportation? Then prepare to fight the throngs of traffic and high parking prices in the lots and yards surrounding Churchill Downs on race days. Last year, prices went up to around $100 to park close to the track.
If you’ve purchased an Official Ticket Packages through Derby Experiences that includes your accommodations in Louisville, then chances are you already have transportation to and from Churchill Downs on race days included.
However, if for some reason you didn’t opt in for that inclusion or if you’re still looking to get provided-for transportation, look no further! With public motor coaches, private vehicle services and semi-private shuttle services available, no matter the size of your group, we can get you there!
And if you do decide to take the traffic head on, opt in for Derby Experiences’ private valet parking! Our lot is one and a half blocks away from the Gate One entrance into Churchill Downs (about a five minute walk). The lot is secured and staffed throughout the day offering maximum security, and there are even covered areas in case of inclement weather.
It beats sitting in traffic and paying top dollar for a close parking spot any day!
Whether you are seeking tours inside Churchill Downs or outside in the city, you have to take advantage of the variety of tours on hand! Take a look at some of the tours we can set you up with:
Time to Add ‘Em On!
