Kentucky Derby

Experience the glamour and excitement of "The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports" with a visit to the annual Kentucky Derby. Held on the first Saturday of every May, this "Run for the Roses" is the first leg of Thoroughbred racing's prestigious Triple Crown. While in Louisville, enjoy Derby parades and join the festivities before proceeding to Churchill Downs for the main event. With a mint julep in hand, cheer your favorite horse to the finish line and see the champion crowned in the Winner's Circle. Head to the Kentucky Derby Museum to learn more about the Derby's history -- the museum chronicles past events with more than 20,000 collectible items and artifacts.
