Arkansas State House Society to Host Derby Day Fundraiser

Old State House Museum - Thursday, April 26, 2018 2018 - Thursday, April 26, 2018

Horses racingDon your Southern summer best and enjoy food from Brewski's Pub & Grub while sipping on specialty drinks — like mint juleps, of course! — great locally made whiskey from Rock Town Distillery and craft beer from Lost Forty.

The party starts at 3 p.m. on May 5 with lawn games, music, food and drinks, all building up to the excitement of watching the Kentucky Derby streamed live right to the Old State House lawn!

Attendees are invited to dress up for summer in the South, which might include hats, seersucker, gingham or linen. Barbara/Jean and Mr. Wick will award prizes to the best-dressed attendees.

Derby Day is the premier fundraising event hosted by the Arkansas State House Society in support of the Old State House Museum. Proceeds support the museum's School Bus Fund and other educational efforts.

Tickets are on sale now and available here. Tickets are $50 for general admission and $75 for VIP passes. VIP tickets include a dedicated bar, separate food service and a raffle ticket.
