Celebrity Day At The Downs Presented by Kentuckiana Honda Dealers
The Kentucky Derby Festival is postponing all events on the 2020 schedule until later in the year in response to concerns about COVID-19. For now, public health and safety needs to be our focus. We appreciate everything that is being done on a state and local level, and we want to support that effort.
We are working to reschedule events. Please know, the Festival’s schedule may look a little different as we move things into this new timeframe. Our goal is to have Thunder Over Louisville, the miniMarathon, the Pegasus Parade, Fest-a-Ville and the Chow Wagon, and many other events in between.
We are contacting all those involved with the postponed events to alert them of the changes, including ticket holders for Celebrity Day at the Downs. At this time, we do not have the new date for the event, but will reach out to ticket holders once it is confirmed. We would be happy to issue a refund for your ticket should you not be able to attend the new date.
