Whether you've attended the Kentucky Derby before or not, you already know that Derby weekend is so much more than the horse races (even though that is the most important part). It's about pageantry, elegance, celebrities, and PARTIES!
Some of the biggest Hollywood affairs are held during Kentucky Derby week and it's only fitting that if you're planning to attend the 2015 Kentucky Derby, you're planning to hit some of these high-profile events.
With that being said, not just anyone is invited. With professional athletes, Hollywood stars, musicians, and other big names in attendance at each party, the guest list is kept tight and generally, unless you know someone, you can't get in.
Well, hello there, we're Derby Experiences and we're your 'someone.'
We're about to tell you about the hottest Kentucky Derby parties to sweep Louisville during Derby week and we're going to give you the 411 on how you can get an invite!
First stop, the party schedule.
The Taste of Derby™ Party - 4/30/15
Held the eve of the Kentucky Oaks, the
Taste of Derby™ Party is a hit for many reasons. Masterful chefs from all over the world gather in one location to create some of the most popular dishes and live entertainment will be present to keep the party going. Guests are invited to sample these delicacies while mingling with some of the biggest names in horse racing and A-list celebrities.
Not to mention, the Taste of Derby™ is for a great cause! Partial proceeds of the party go towards benefitting hunger relief organizations. So while you're making your Kentucky Derby dreams come true, you're also making a difference in someone's life.
How to Get Access:
Derby Experiences offers two ways to get you to this party: a Taste of Derby™ ticket or a Taste of Derby™ ticket package! Essentially, with a Taste of Derby™ ticket you'll only get an invite to the party, but with a Taste of Derby™ package, you'll also get tickets to both days of racing with exlusive hospitality access!
The Fillies & Lilies Party - 5/1/15
Held directly following the 141st running of the Kentucky Oaks, the second annual
Fillies & Lilies Party brought to you by Derby Experiences is an event you don't want to miss! It's held in the Kentucky Derby Museum so not only do you not need to leave Churchill Downs and fight traffic after the races to get to this party, but it's also small making it an intimate affair.
Live entertainment will be provided as guests dance the night away amidst the exhibits and allure surrounding America's oldest sporting event. Heavy hors d'oeuvres, premium open bars and a bourbon lounge will be at your disposal, and magician Matthew Furman will also be in attendance to wow you with his illusions and tricks.
How to Get Access:
Only through Derby Experiences can you get access to the 2015 Fillies & Lilies Party!
The Winner's Party - 5/2/15
Held in the Kentucky Derby Museum immediately following the running of the 141st Kentucky Derby is the Winner's Party! Join the winning owner, trainer and jockey along with A-list celebrities as the winner of the Kentucky Derby is celebrated.
Cocktails and hors d'oeuvres will be provided followed by an evening of dancing!
How to Get Access:
Similar to the Taste of Derby™ Party, the
