The Conservancy presents Day at the Races
The Conservancy will present the 10th Annual Day at the Races. The event will feature more than 500 guests dressed in their Derby best and fabulous hats will stroll the sprawling grounds of Oak Lawn Park to celebrate the best two-minutes in sports, The Kentucky Derby. This lively event celebrates the 144th Run for the Roses and benefits the beautification, preservation and thoughtful development of Arlington Hall and Oak Lawn Park.
Among the array of fun activities, guests will sip Mint Juleps and enjoy fine Southern cuisine while socializing over nostalgic lawn games in the Formal Gardens, placing bets at the wagering table and engaging in a silent auction. The magnificent Great Hall will brim with live music and dancing before guests gather to watch the horses compete for the Garland of Roses on the big screen.
Guests are encouraged to don their best Kentucky Derby Style, and take part in the competition for Best Dressed and Best Hat. This classic springtime event truly brings both Conservancy and non-Conservancy members together for a fun afternoon in a beautiful setting.
