Kentucky Derby Festival Louisville Urban League Derby Gala


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.



The Kentucky Derby Festival and the Louisville Urban League present this year’s Louisville Urban League Derby Gala sponsored by Brown-Forman, Bellarmine University and Republic Bank.

Find tickets and more information at or by calling (502) 585-4622.

Attire is Cocktail/Black Tie preferred.

November 9 - December 7
