Governor’s Downtown Derby Celebration

May 4 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm


Governor and First Lady Matt Bevin cordially invite all Kentuckians and their guests to join them at the Governor’s Downtown Derby Celebration on May 4th from 9:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. in downtown Frankfort.

The 2019 Derby Celebration will showcase Frankfort with new and traditional festivities for which the Governor’s Derby Celebration is known—offering plenty of color, excitement, entertainment, children’s activities, and food to suit all tastes.

The YMCA Derby Dash on Broadway and the stick horse races on the Old State Capitol lawn have become annual events which children love to race in.

A free concert will headline the entertainment on the lawn in front of the Old State Capitol.

And the crowd-pleasing tradition of having Kentucky artists exhibiting and selling their work will continue this year.

The event is free and open to everyone. Parking is available.
