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 Hospital. 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.)


Attire for the day is elegantly casual. Fabulous party hats are part of the day's festivities. Prizes will be awarded for the show-stopping toppers. Stilettos are best left in the closet (the party takes place on lawn).

Dining & Mint Juleps

Mint Juleps flow upon your arrival and a sumptuous Southern buffet will be offered at 1:00 pm.

Post Time

The day's races will be broadcast and betting opportunities are available on all races.

We would like to thank all of our 2019 sponsors!
