2024 Kentucky Derby Tickets at Churchill Downs

Your package includes preferred seating to the Kentucky Derby on Saturday. Tickets to the Kentucky Oaks, which occurs on Friday, are optional. An important part of the Derby experience to consider is where you’ll be sitting. With Grandstand seating you’ll be provided with a view of the action as the horses round the final turn, speed past your position and cross the finish line. Clubhouse seating brings you closer to the action and allows you to enjoy a slightly more prestigious atmosphere, and up above, from Millionaires Row, you’ll be rubbing elbows with the who’s who and enjoying the race from a luxurious, climate-controlled environment. Higher seats are generally regarded as superior as they provide a better perspective of the race and allow you to see the action on the back stretch of the race course. The higher the seats the better!

Just would like to thank you so much for your services and support to make everything as seamless as possible with continuous coordination and detailed updates prior to their trip package and making it exciting for my clients. The family had an amazing time and great experience at the Kentucky Derby last week! Everything planned in the package and the day of arrival with some assistance from your hospitality desk couldn’t have been better. Thanks again.

Louisville Travel Guide

“I just love the tradition of picking out my hat to go with my Derby outfit! It’s a great way to start the trip: settle into downtown Louisville and start shopping for the perfect, locally-designed hat or fascinator to get into the spirit of the Derby and join in on the pageantry.” – Louisville Travel Guide Expert Lauren Lehotsky
