3 Reasons to Include Hospitality in Your Kentucky Derby® Experience

Posted by Jazzy Morgan on Thu, Sep 18, 2014

Thinking about attending the 2018 Kentucky Derby®? Let us tell you the three things you need to know about hospitality at the Kentucky Derby® and explain to you why it will take your Derby experience to the next level!

1. Can You Say “All-Inclusive?”

When you receive access to hospitality at the Kentucky Derby®, you are invited to a VIP area within Churchill Downs® where you’ll have access to a plethora of amenities. Within your exclusive hospitality venue, you’ll be able to enjoy complimentary gourmet food buffets, a premium open or cash bar depending which venue you choose, private bathrooms, meet & greets, and so much more.

There’s plenty of luxurious seating areas within hospitality to give you the chance to be comfortable and relax between events.

2. Meet Celebrities

VIPs hangout with the VIPs! If you have access to an exclusive hospitality area throughout the Kentucky Derby® weekend, you're part of the a-list crowd.

In the past, guests have had the chance to meet; model and actress from Django: Unchained, Nichole Galicia, the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders, Magician Matthew Furman, and jockeys Chris McCarron and Pat Day where they made rounds throughout hospitality areas to meet guests.

3. It’s an Escape from the Elements

Churchill Downs® on Kentucky Oaks® and Kentucky Derby® days are when crowds are at maximum capacity, every seat is filled and the lawn is packed. 

However, with crowds come stress. It can be tiring to maneuver your way through tons of people, all day with your only place to relax being the stands. With hospitality, you can get away from those crowds and reboot.

With that being said, some hospitality areas are enclosed and climate-controlled. If it rains, hospitality gives you a place to stay dry that is not clustered with everyone else who is trying to seek cover. If it’s hot outside it gives you a place to cool down and rehydrate. That’s a win-win in our book!
