The Denver Mini Derby

  • Stanley Marketplace 2501 Dallas Street Aurora, CO, 80010 United States (map)

A Kentucky Derby Viewing Party with a Twist...

Come take part in the most fun Kentucky Derby Day event anywhere! As seen on 5280, Thrillist and more! Right after we watch the 143rd Running the Kentucky Derby, we will have our own "mini race" and showing of our adorable mini horses trotting around on site in a charity *race*! We have the biggest screens, a great LIVE band and DJ, tons of great food options, Best Derby hat contests, unlimited Mint Juleps available, BBQ, a Corgi Race and an atmosphere like no other are just a few reasons why you can't miss this amazing event at Stanley Marketplace. Break out your most over the top hat, your brightest pastel pants and we will see you there. 

Proceeds go towards four different charities, Minds Matter of Denver, Cherry Arts Festival and Kids Compassion Project and 808 Equine Horse Rescue.  

*** I thought this was a particularly investing statement to include and made me even more interested in this event.  "*Horse racing is undoubtedly cruel, the Mini Derby does not promote or endorse horse racing but rather an enjoyable day out with friends in fancy attire. The Kentucky Derby could stop completely and we would still throw a big party with bigger hats and our four legged friends. In fact, we would be glad if it did.*
