Planning the Ultimate Kentucky Derby Event

The Kentucky Derby is one of the longest-held sporting events in the United States, held annually in Louisville, Kentucky. It is a famous horse race that serves as the third leg of The American Triple. The derby typically takes place on the first Saturday in May, and the event itself takes around 2 minutes. However, the festivities surrounding this event begin well before and last long after the winning horse crosses the finish line.

A way to make this event memorable from the comfort of one’s own home is to host a Derby themed watch party. With the help of some friends, family, and delicious food, anyone has the power to make this a day to remember.

Typical finger foods and shareables are ideal for a party of this nature, as are themed cocktails. Along with food, the next best way to get in the Derby spirit is to dress the part. Oversized hats for the ladies and bowties for the men are a staple. Once the dress code and the snack spread is decided, no Kentucky Derby party is complete without decorations and on-theme invitations. With these considerations, guests will be eager to spend the day cheering on their favorite equine.
