Saturday, May 1st



Grab your Derby hat or bow tie, and enjoy the 13th Annual Day at the Races from the comforts of your own home or from Turtle Creek Park. 


In 2020, 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. And the Live Auction raised more than ever before!
