The Art Center’s Kentucky Derby Party will feature Southern elegance at its finest, with savory
Southern cuisine and tasty mint juleps during the pre-race hour. Then at 5 pm, the most exciting
two minutes of sports will be broadcast on the huge screen in Levitt Auditorium while the horses
run for the roses.
Post-race, stay for the Kentucky Derby Hat Contest; prizes will be awarded for Most Creative,
Most Elegant, and Largest. Southern-styled music and Kentucky Derby trivia will keep the party going.
