Railbird Runway

recurring event
Whether at lavish Derby parties, casual infield get-togethers, or on elegant clubhouse promenades, celebrities and railbirds converge on Kentucky to see and be seen in their very best togs every May. As Irwin S. Cobb says, "Anything goes at the Derby!"
Railbird Runway showcases both artifacts from the permanent collection and loans from individual Derby trend-setters, providing key examples of the outlandish and forward-thinking ensembles which continue to define Kentucky's greatest cultural phenomenon. Explore the world of Derby fashion—from the tradition’s origins to its ever evolving trends of today--and discover why style has become one of the most recognizable parts of the Kentucky Derby experience.

Exhibit Highlights

  • Selections of hats and garments from the early years of the Kentucky Derby
  • Eye catching accessories and clothing worn by royalty and celebrities to Churchill Downs
  • Wild and wacky handmade creations worn by die hard Derby fans
