Join us for our Eighteenth Annual Derby Party!

Saturday, May 7th, 2022, 4:00-8:00PM — Greenwood Park

⋆ ⋆ ⋆ Tickets Now on Sale! ⋆ ⋆ ⋆

What started as a small gathering in our apartment in early 2000s has grown into a legendary event for over 600 of our friends. For 2022 we're working hard to get back to our previous days and ways of celebration. Whether you’re in it for the ponies, the prizes, the spectacle of the hats, or the swagger of julep drinkers in seersucker suits, we guarantee a good time and mint juleps for all!


Events Overview

The doors (and bar!) will open at 4:00PM. Arrive in time for live music, food, and fun before the 148th Run for the Roses. Before the race begins, enjoy live tunes from The Bluegrass Book Club, promenade in our parade of hats, and get down with Dandy Wellington and His Band. Make a bet and cheer on your favorite horse before hitting the dance floor once again. The bar becomes a cash bar at 8:00PM, but you should certainly stick around for more revelry.

Like previous years you can count on Maker’s Mark mint juleps handmade by Greenwood Park’s finest and served in official 2022 Derby glasses; a hat contest with prizes, so BRING YOUR BEST LOOKS; and live televised coverage of the 148th Run for the Roses.


Venue

We are pleased to return to Greenwood Park. We’ll convert this 13,000 square foot South Slope beer garden into a bourbon garden! Dedicated corn toss area is on, and we’ll still have room for a stage, dance floor, hat-making station, and areas that can only be defined once mint juleps are in our system.
