Day At The Races

The 14th Annual Day at the Races is in the starting gate on Saturday, May 7th! Dallas’ original Derby Party is the signature fundraiser of the Turtle Creek Conservancy. Guests enjoy Mint Juleps, Southern-inspired cuisine, open bar, live music and dancing. VIP guests have a special seating and viewing area, a private buffet and premium open bar.

Everyone can participate in “wagering,” the silent and live auction, lawn games. Then we’ll all gather at the big screen to watch the fastest two minutes in sports – the Kentucky Derby!

Grab your Derby hat or bow tie, and enjoy the 14th Annual Day at the Races from Arlington Hall & Turtle Creek Park. 


In 2020 and 2021, we went virtual and still had a successful event with a livestream from the park and over 200 “Derby in a Box” food, drink and fun items going out to park supporters.
