A Day Filled With Entertainment
In addition to the people-watching and lively conversation, you can enjoy the latest luxury models showcased by Fresno Lexus. Giving opportunities include our Gifts For Kids campaign that allows you to direct a special donation to Valley Children's Healthcare. Find the perfect getaway or Mother's Day gift at our Live and Silent Auctions. For your entertainment, stroll our Vendor Row while enjoying the sounds of the Dixieland music. Of course, watching the Kentucky Derby live with a few dollars waged on the outcome will make your Derby Celebration truly memorable. Just don't forget to consult your bookie for tips on the favored fillies! Cash, checks, Visa and MasterCard accepted.

The party will be held under a brilliant white tent on the grassy infield of the Fresno Fairgrounds race track. Use the Chance Street entrance off Kings Canyon Boulevard and follow the signs to Derby Down (some event sponsors will receive parking passes for Millionaire Row.)
