THE ORIGINAL
Denver Derby Party

Presented by Woodford Reserve

OFTEN IMITATED, NEVER REPLICATED – The Original Denver Derby Party, now in its 18th year, is the biggest of its kind outside Kentucky. Held annually on the first Saturday in May, and spread out over 4 blocks in Downtown Denver, it has become a Colorado tradition. 100% of all ticket proceeds benefit the Sean Ranch Lough Foundation, which provides 4 year college scholarships to underprivileged students. Thanks in large part to the support of our patrons, the SRL Foundation has given over 58 students the chance to attend college without financial burden!
