Kentucky Dog Derby
Celebrate the Kentucky Derby in style with your pooch at the Esplanade!
The Kentucky Dog Derby is a 1/2-mile parade around the Esplanade to benefit the park, highlighting it as a resource for dog owners while celebrating the arrival of spring.
We encourage both you and your dog to wear your Derby finest (bow ties, hats, sundresses, florals, and more) – there will be prizes for both best-dressed pup and for human/dog duet! Register here.
