An Epic Detroit Event


Next May will be our 5th Annual Kentucky Derby Day Party. These events began in 2015 at the Robert's Riverwalk Hotel, 2016 at the Detroit Seafood Market and 2017 at the Hockeytown Rooftop. We were excited to make the Charles Wright Museum our new home in 2018 and beyond.

The Kentucky Derby


 There are few American sporting events with the history and popularity of the Kentucky Derby. It’s rich traditions – sipping a mint julep and donning a beautiful hat – have transcended this two-minute horse race held the first Saturday in May at Churchill Downs in Louisville, KY.
