Since it began in 1875, the Kentucky Derby continues to be the most popular and extravagant horse race in the United States.

While there are plenty of 2018 Kentucky Derby parties in Washington, DC, the craziest has to be Prancin’-A Derby Day Party, presented by Brightestyoungthings.com. Tickets include access to the open bar so that you can imbibe Kentucky’s finest and afterwards you can pet ponies and even ride a horse!

Need another reason to don your wildest fascinator? Check out the 4th Annual Wonders Pink Party that benefits education programs in the metropolitan Washington, DC area for children 8 weeks-12 years. Nosh on the offerings of some of DC’s best food trucks while drinking mint juleps and dancing along with DJ Jamie Mizell.

Revel in tradition at The Willard Hotel’s Round Robin Bar, host of the longest running Kentucky Derby Party in the District. Moreover, this is the site where Henry Clay introduced the mint julep to DC! Dress to impress to be considered for best bonnet or most bodacious bowtie and enjoy sandwiches and Derby pie from the Southern-style buffet.
