On May 2, 2020, the lawn of the Causey Mansion will be filled with guests wearing exotic hats, enjoying Dixieland Music and cheering on their favorite horse as the Milford Museum hosts the first Kentucky Derby Day. The event is planned from 4 to 8 PM.

“We have done the Roaring 20s party for five years,” Claudia Leister, Executive Director of the Milford Museum said. “Although it remained very popular, we thought maybe it was time for a change. We thought this would be a fun way for people to still dress up and have fun in the stunning gardens of the Causey Mansion.”

There will be a hat contest and silent auction as part of the event. Dixieland Music will be provided prior to the race with a DJ after the race. The entertainment is still being confirmed, according to Leister. Tickets are $45 per person and includes heavy hors d’oeuvres as well as drinks from local breweries and distilleries.

“We are hoping that people really go all out with the hat contest,” Leister said. “The Kentucky Derby is known for its unique hats and we encourage guests to use their imagination to create a fun, unique hat for the contest. Of course, the hat contest is not just for women. We are looking forward to seeing some of the fun hats men come up with as well. We are working on getting a large screen television to place on the lawn so we can watch the race and are working on ways to celebrate the start of the race for the Triple Crown.”

Tickets can be purchased at the Milford Museum or online at www.milforddemuseum.org. Sponsorships and donations for the silent auction are being accepted. The event is rain or shine and the museum plans on having tents in place on the grounds. For more information on how to donate, contact Leister at the Milford Museum by calling 302-424-1080.
