Celebrating the Kentucky Derby in Style

One of America’s oldest sporting events is the Kentucky Derby, which is also referred to as the “Run for the Roses”. It is celebrating its 150th anniversary this year, which means that festivities for the Derby are going to be especially extravagant. Kentucky Derby watch parties must be properly planned to encapsulate the excitement of this special day. 

As with any party, the food being served to guests is one of the most important parts of this party experience. Hosts must plan the menus in advance, while properly account for the number of guests and any dietary restrictions. Southern delicacies are usually the cuisine of choice, such as buttermilk biscuits, fried chicken, pork sliders, and hush puppies. Bourbon or pecan pies usually follow the main meal as the desserts of choice. Catering services offer conveniences for hosts, or they can opt for guests to bring their own dishes in a potluck-style set up. 

Planning out the day’s activities can elevate the party atmosphere as well. A Crazy Hat contest is perfect, as it mirrors the Derby’s tradition of viewers wearing extravagant hats. Race betting and Bingo are also two fun events that can drum up some excitement before the main race airs.
