How to Plan the Perfect Kentucky Derby Watch Party

As May draws nearer, many people in and around the Louisville area are gearing up for the 150th Kentucky Derby. Also known as “The Run for the Roses” this race is the most prestigious and longest running sporting event in the country. Although the race itself only lasts for about two minutes, the celebrations before and after the event last for much longer.

Many people who cannot physically attend the derby will choose to have a derby watch party. These parties are filled with food, drink, fashion, and fun, and it is important to put time into planning such an event. The best place to begin is with food, which can be homemade and inspired by traditional Kentuckian delicacies, or catered by some local restaurants in the city. These dishes paired with crafty cocktails will keep guests happy as anticipation for the race builds.

To add to the fun of the day, some hosts may choose to pick a dress code or theme that matches the vibes of the derby. This means bright colors, floppy hats, well-tailored suits, and sunglasses, leaving guests looking like they are ready to take on a beautiful spring day out on the grounds. Finally add some decorations and themed music, and this derby watch party is destined to take the triple crown next month.
