Posted by Evan Chronis on Fri, Apr 12, 2019

On May 2, 2020, the starting gates at Churchill Downs® will open for the 146th running of the Kentucky Derby®. 

The crowd of over 150,000 spectators will erupt into a roar as "The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports" unfolds in front of their eyes. 

Will you be there?

With Triple Crown™ fever reaching a high in the past five years and brand-new renovations to Churchill Downs being completed, the demand to be in person for the premier event in thoroughbred horse racing is increasing every day. 

Luckily, securing a ticket to the 2020 Kentucky Derby has never been easier. You don't need to have a Personal Seat License (PSL) or a box membership with Churchill Downs, you can simply secure your spot at the 2020 Kentucky Derby with an Official Ticket Package from Derby Experiences!

Kentucky Derby Official Ticket Package

An Official Ticket Package is the best way to experience the 2020 Kentucky Derby.

Instead of offering a general admission ticket or a spot in the infield, Derby Experiences combines a ticket at Churchill Downs with premium hospitality, exclusive benefits, travel accommodations and more that you can't get anywhere else for a trip to the Kentucky Derby.  

Most Official Ticket Packages include access to premium hospitality spaces around Churchill Downs during Derby weekend. Derby Experiences has access to some of the most acclaimed spots around the track, but also hosts four of its every own hospitality spaces — the Aristides Lounge, Affirmed Lounge, Sunny's Halo Lounge and Citation Lounge

Hospitality takes your Derby experience to the next level, offering climate controlled venues with wagering options, gourmet food and the even the chance to meet celebrity jockeys. 

You can also attend the top parties at the 2020 Kentucky Derby with select Official Ticket Packages. Derby Experiences sells into the Taste of Derby™ and Winner's Party and hosts the Fillies & Lilies Party!

Why Derby Experiences?

For half of the year, Derby Experiences is the only way that you can securely buy tickets to the 2020 Kentucky Derby.

The public on-sale for the Derby typically doesn't happen until November of the previous year, but Derby Experiences launches Official Ticket Packages for the Kentucky Derby right after the previous year's event. 

This means that you get a head start on getting your 2020 Kentucky Derby tickets by choosing to go with Derby Experiences. 

As the Official Experience Package Provider of Churchill Downs, Derby Experiences can also promise Official Ticket Package prices that aren't affected by fluctuations in the secondary ticket market. After the public on-sale date, tickets will be more readily available, but will increase in price through sites like SeatGeek, StubHub, Ticketmaster and other resellers as the event gets closer. 

With the massive influx of people into Louisville for Derby weekend, finding hotel lodging and travel accommodations can become an insurmountable task even if you have Derby tickets. Not only does room availability become sparse, but prices skyrocket at hotels within the vicinity of Churchill Downs. That's why Derby Experiences partners with several local Louisville hotels to offer the option of adding hotel stays for the entire weekend to an Official Ticket Package during the buying process.

Derby Experiences also arranges Motor Coach or Charter Bus transfer from each hotel that guests can add to their package.
