Kentucky Derby Museum Fan Fest



The Kentucky Derby Festival recognizes the importance of public health and safety – it is always the Derby Festival’s top priority and we appreciate everything that is being done for all of us. We want to do our part as well, and with an abundance of caution, have decided to postpone the 2020 Kentucky Derby Festival until later in the year.

The schedule may look a little different as we move things into a new timeframe, but there will be a Thunder Over Louisville, a miniMarathon, a Pegasus Parade, and many other events in between. As you can imagine, there are a lot of moving parts, and once we get all the details finalized, we will release a new schedule.




Join the Kentucky Derby Museum for a full day of fun for families, horse racing enthusiasts and bourbon lovers.

Meet trailblazing female jockeys starring in a new exhibit celebrating their “Right to Ride.” Experts will teach you how to place an (educated) bet, explore Churchill Downs on an exclusive tour, enjoy performances by Louisville Orchestra members, purchase a Woodford Reserve official Kentucky Derby bourbon bottle, plus kids can make their own Derby hat and decorate a lucky horseshoe!



$16 for adults
$10 for children 5-14 (*children under 5 are free.)
