Volunteer With Us!

Volunteer Here!

It’s that simple! The Kentucky Derby Festival couldn’t produce our events without the help of our dedicated volunteers. The Festival itself would not be the grand civic celebration it has become without their selfless service.

To all our volunteers – THANK YOU!

 

Even through these unprecedented times they continue to provide support on so many levels. Each year we recognize one of our volunteers as the “Volunteer of the Year,” for their years of service and the time they’ve dedicated to helping the Festival.
