In addition to fabulous live music and great local food and drinks, you have a chance to win some amazing prizes*!

To participate in the raffle, entry is $5, and all proceeds support the Derby in the City non-profit partner, Open My World.

With the help of a few special horses, Open My World Therapeutic Riding Center strives to improve the quality of life for individuals with special needs involving physical, mental, and emotional disabilities.

You can enter the raffle as many times as you want to increase your chances to win the prizes. Prizes will be announced closer to the festival date.

Additionally, it wouldn’t be a Derby party if we didn’t have a ‘Best Hat’ contest. You can enter yourself or someone else’s hat to win the grand prize, as well as, a $100 VISA gift card. Photos of the entries will be broadcast throughout the event on the Jumbotron. Contest entry is also $5* per entry.

*You must be present to win.
