The tenth Annual Day at the Races, hosted by The Conservancy, will be held this Saturday, May 5, 2018, from 4 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. at the historic Arlington Hall. Guests will don their Derby best and fabulous hats and will enjoy the sprawling grounds of Oak Lawn Park while celebrating the most exciting two minutes in sports, The Kentucky Derby! This lively event celebrates the 144th Run for the Roses and benefits the beautification, maintenance and thoughtful development of the historic Arlington Hall and Oak Lawn Park.
Among the array of fun activities, guests will sip Woodford Reserve Mint Juleps and enjoy fine Southern cuisine while socializing over nostalgic lawn games in the Formal Gardens and engaging in a silent auction. Aside from betting on the horses, there will also be opportunities to win in a dine-around gift card pull and a new reverse raffle. The magnificent Georgia Bridgewater Orchestra will entertain as guests enjoy themselves on the dance floor, sponsored by Stuart Weitzman. Then at 5:34 p.m. CST on the dot, it’s off to the races! Guests will gather to watch the horses compete for the Garland of Roses on the big screen.
Ladies and gentlemen 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.
