Kick off Kentucky Derby Week in style on Opening Night with live racing and entertainment in celebration of the upcoming Kentucky Derby. Gates open at 5:00 p.m., the first live race is at 6:00 p.m.
Opening Night is a "Dress to Impress" occasion. Ladies are encouraged to wear party and cocktail dresses and men are encouraged to wear sharp pants and a dress shirt; a tie is optional. The signature accessory for Opening Night is an evening headpiece, whether it’s a fascinator, feathers, a hat, a headband, or something else! We want ladies and gentlemen to have fun sporting a nighttime Derby look.
Tickets start at just $10.00 for General Admission.
