Day At The Races

The 14th Annual Day at the Races, presented by Truist Bank, is in the starting gate on Saturday, May 7th, 2022! 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!
