For more than six decades, the Kentucky Derby Festival has brought our community together in celebration. That mission takes on new meaning in light of this week’s tragedy.
We are heartbroken and grieving with you and with our city. It is difficult to keep moving forward. But we know we cannot give up or give in.
Through many trying times, we have witnessed the strength and resiliency of our community. We’ve found ways to lift each other up, triumph over tragedy, and stand strong in the face of extraordinary challenges. We know we will do that again, together.
The days and weeks ahead will not be easy. But our calling remains the same. We will make our best efforts to be there for you and help unite our community during this difficult time.
We love Louisville.
We are Louisville Strong.
