Additional ticket inventory for the 147th running of the GI Kentucky Derby will go on sale to the general public Friday, Mar. 26 at noon Eastern time.
The newest options, good for both Derby day May 1 and the preceding afternoon's GI Kentucky Oaks program, are uncovered reserved bleacher-type seating in the first turn and uncovered box seating for groups of six in the infield. There will also be a limited number of first- and second-floor grandstand reserved seats available for purchase. Click here for ticket information.
For 2021, all reserved tickets for the Derby and the Oaks include all-inclusive food, non-alcoholic and alcoholic beverages in an effort to reduce the amount of time spent standing in line while offering contact-free payment options and offering access to a greater variety of food options.
Following previously announced COVID-19 protocols, Churchill will limit the number of reserved seats to 40-50% of capacity and up to 60% in certain private areas that allow for social distancing. Churchill reserves the right to make additional seating available should the circumstances surrounding the virus continue to improve.
