Celebrate Derby Day @ The Marcy Casino

Kentucky Derby fans will be happy to hear that this year there is a derby party scheduled for the Marcy Casino in Delaware Park. Typically, folks gather at house parties around the city, but this year race fans are putting together something a bit more special for this longstanding tradition.

Derby Day @ The Marcy will feature a Kentucky Derby BBQ with fresh spring salads, along with Mint Juleps, a small Batch Bourbon Bar, and beer selections – Founders All Day IPA and Community Beer Works. The Marcy Casino is the perfect type of setup for just such a springtime affair. Throw in some live music by Folkfaces, and you have everything that you need to enjoy the 141st Kentucky Derby in style.

Pre-sale tickets are $20.00 | Tickets @ Eventbrite | Cash Bar | Event to benefit Buffalo Therapeutic Riding Center (BTRC) and the SPCA of Erie County horse rescue.
