The Kentucky Derby is the longest continually held sporting event in America, and it is one of the most prestigious horse races in the world. It is held annually in Louisville, Kentucky, at the world-famous Churchill Downs on the first Saturday of May. The Kentucky Derby is rich in Louisville heritage, culture, food, fashion and fun. A Derby theme is particularly appropriate during April as we celebrate Mint Julep Month, the Kentucky Derby-featured cocktail.
