As we pay homage to the Black Godfather's of Horse Racing, enjoy great food, signature cocktails, cash bar, cigars, prizes and the company of great friends, while watching the race on the big screen.
The Derby Party takes place on Saturday, May 6th from 5:00PM-10:00PM at Maymont's 1000 Westover. The venue features Mediterranean architecture with a mix of modern and historical features, plus a private outdoor courtyard.
