DETAILS PLEASE!

What is the Down & Derby Party?

The Down & Derby Party celebrates all the pageantry and excitement of the Kentucky Derby. It just happens to do it Colorado-style. A live-feed of the actual race brings the action to you from the world’s most exciting two minutes in sports!  Event proceeds go to benefit NOCO Unify.  This year their primary beneficiaries are: ChildSafe, Hearts & Horses, Food Bank For Larimer County and Partners Mentoring Youth. This is a 21 and over event.

What do I get with my ticket purchase?

Tickets to this must-attend event of the season include the tastiest of Southern fare, beverages, bourbon tasting, and, of course, the traditional Mint Julep. Tickets for the Run for the Roses Raffle, available for purchase at the event, make you eligible to win a variety of tremendous prize packages, including a trip to Louisville for the 2017 Kentucky Derby. Live music, dancing and other shenanigans will make you smile all day long. The hat contest is always a fun time. Oh, and there is always a few surprises. You get the idea, right? It’s just a darn fun time.

How much are tickets?

Tickets are $100 per person.  However, we do have one-day Advance Ticket Sale Event where tickets are $80.  This year’s Advance Ticket Sale Event is Sunday, April 10th from 2p-5p at The Summit in Windsor.  Not only do you get great fun with your ticket, but you are helping support some great kids organizations in NOCO!  Thank you – Down & Derby Party 2016 is SOLD OUT.

What is the ticket release party (aka Advance Ticket Event) and Hat Exchange?

This year’s Advance Ticket Sale Event in on Sunday, April 10th from 2p-5p at The Summit in Windsor.  On this DAY ONLY you can purchase tickets for $80 compared to the regular $100 price.

We will also have a Hat Exchange event alongside the Advance Ticket Sale Event.  Here you can find hats (new and gently used) that you may purchase through a donation to NOCO Unify.  You’ll get your hat and ticket all at one time!  Plus, we’ll even buy you a drink for your participation!  If you’d like to donate a hat please email Eric Knotts eric@harmonyclub.info.

Can I buy tickets at the door?

Sorry, Folks. The Down & Derby Party 2016 is SOLD OUT!

What do I wear?

We’d like to encourage you to wear your best Derby duds. Don’t know what those are? Take a look at the pictures. Of course we’ll take you if you don’t want to get all Derby dudded-up, but give it a try. And, women, yes, hats are a critical fashion statement.

What's the Hashtag?

#NOCODERBY

I’d like to do more. Can I sponsor the Event?

You bet…We’d be glad to have you! Or, if you’re interested in being a bigger piece of the puzzle, here is the NoCo Unify 2016 Sponsor kit.

What’s the LPR Construction Hat Contest?

Of course, no Kentucky Derby event could be complete without a tribute to proudly worn, traditional, ostentatious headwear. The Best Hat Contest will honor the finest chapeau donned at the party – the bigger and more flamboyant, the better.  And, we thank our friends at LPR Construction for proudly sponsoring this event.  It’s good to know the guys in hard hats have such a soft heart!  In need of a great hat?  Try NOCO’s own Cynthia Lee, winner of several official Kentucky Derby hat contests.

What else should I know?

Well, since it is a fundraiser for NOCO Unify, there’s great ways for you to help the children. We’ll have raffle tickets for a drawing to the 2017 Kentucky Derby to see it live. There’s an auction for you to bid on great prizes. We are here to raise much needed funds for underprivileged kids in NOCO.

Where do I park?

There’s a huge parking lot at the venue.

Do you provide transportation?

Yes!  Check out all our transportation options here.

Do you offer refunds?

The event is a “rain or shine” event and we made every attempt to run the event and did conduct the event for a period of time until it was deemed unsafe for patrons.  We appreciate your support of NOCO Unify and the children of Northern Colorado.  The outreach and support of our decision to cancel during the event was been tremendous.  Thank you NOCO!
