JOIN TEAM KDF! 

No volunteers, no Festival! It’s that simple! Without the help of over 4,000 committed citizens, the Derby Festival would not be the grand civic celebration it has become. With over 70 events, production of even a portion of the Festival would be impossible without volunteer support.

From entertaining lost children at Thunder to hosting bands at the Pegasus Parade, volunteers serve on committees that work throughout the year to guarantee Festival fun and safety for the community. In addition, many serve on one-day events performing duties such as handing out water at the Marathon/miniMarathon, pouring beer at BeerFest or helping with crowd control at the Great Bed Races.

If you are interested in volunteering for the Kentucky Derby Festival please register on-line at the link on the top of this page.
