Hats and horses, bow ties and bets

Join the Fletcher Foundation as we host the inaugural Fletcher’s Run for the Roses Kentucky Derby party on Saturday, May 1, 2021. Enjoy a mint julep or your favorite beverage, and savor the most elegant hors d’oeuvres as you stroll the grounds. Try your hand at your favorite lawn games. Live music will echo through the campus, while you pause for a moment with your date at the portrait station.

Ladies, no Kentucky Derby event is complete without the proper attire. It’s time to pull out all the stops as you acquire or create from scratch your most elegant, yet outrageous, charming, yet outlandish hat to judged. A prize will be awarded, so don’t miss out on this unique contest.
