The Denver Mini Derby
May 20, 2017
One of the best viewing parties for the famed 2017 Kentucky Derby and now with its own “Mini Derby”! Grab your fanciest hat, iron the pastel pants and prepare for an event like no other!
The 2017 Denver Mini Derby brings the spirit of Kentucky Derby right to this great state of Colorado! More than simply a viewing party with unlimited cocktails, the event will feature a LIVE MINI Derby! Join several thousand of your new best Southern styled friends for the most memorable social experience of the year! There will be two large viewing screens, one inside the 10,000 sq ft event space and one outside near Denver’s own “Churchill Downs”. Beautiful thoroughbreds will be in attendance and available for pictures, as will mini race horses.
The Mini Derby – the only Derby Party in the Nation that also includes a MINI DERBY with real MINI HORSES! Yes, live miniature horses with pint sized riders will compete in a small race at the field adjacent to the venue with charitable betting encouraged. The Mini Derby will take place following the Kentucky Derby!
Tickets must be bought in advance, they will sell out and will not be available at the door.
In partnership with Stanley Marketplace, come early to shop and stay for the ticketed viewing party and Mini Derby following the 2017 Kentucky Derby.
