Onsite Parking

All onsite parking at Churchill Downs is reserved in advance and available for pre-purchase in February through April as long as inventory is available. Parking within each reserved lot is first-come, first-served including ADA spaces. If you do not have pre-purchased parking, you will not be able to purchase it onsite. At the Kentucky Exposition Center we will have free parking with free shuttles going to and from Churchill Downs on Opening Night and Champions Day through Thurby. On the Kentucky Oaks and Kentucky Derby days shuttles will be going to and from the Kentucky Exposition Center as well, but this parking is available with a pre-purchased pass only. Additional lot details for specific events to follow. Please check back to this page as well as your email for reserved parking purchase information.
