New Ky Derby Museum Week Schedule

Following the rescheduling of the Kentucky Derby Week in September, the Kentucky Derby Museum has rescheduled its Derby Week museum events.

Big Brims and Fancy Trims Hat Sale – Aug. 6

Fan Fest – Aug. 16 (Official Kentucky Derby Festival Event)

Kentucky Derby Museum Gala – Aug. 28

Biscuits and Bourbon – Sept. 2

Thurby VIP Lounge – Sept. 3

Originally slated to open Apr. 19, Kentucky Derby Museum's new exhibit, “Right to Ride”-paying tribute to female jockeys and their journey in Thoroughbred racing–is currently under construction and an alternate launch date will be announced.

“This has been an unprecedented time for the museum and we are thankful for the support of the community,” said Patrick Armstrong, CEO of the Kentucky Derby Museum. “We know that Kentucky Derby week will be a celebration unlike anything this community has seen before and we look forward to our events being a part of this historic moment.”

The Kentucky Derby Museum is currently closed to visitors due to COVID-19. The closure affects all exhibits, tours, educational programs and outreach, as well as the gift shop and 'Derby Café Express'. They will remain closed for at least two weeks.
