Billing itself as a celebration of “The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports,” Derby Day is a Kentucky Derby party promising a lavish Southern-style celebration with “high-fashion and high stakes” happening right here in Toronto.
Hosted by Woodbine Racetrack in the Northern Dancer Room, this race-day event promises food and drink including a whisky bar, live entertainment, a nail bar, and a contest for the best dressed.
The annual springtime horse race held in Louisville, Kentucky has been run every consecutive year since 1875. Per tradition, this sports event is also known to attract revelers ready to party with abandon.
Whether you care for horse races or not, Derby Day is the perfect excuse to get dressed up and drink a mint julep.
When: May 6, 1 pm to 7 pm
Where: Woodbine Racetrack, 555 Rexdale Boulevard, Toronto
