The Ultimate Kentucky Derby Block Party

May 4 @ 3:00 pm - 10:00 pm EDT

Rockin’ River Street, a community-driven initiative spearheaded by Wall Street Neighborhood Association board members and local restaurateurs BJ Lawless (BJ Ryan’s and Banc House) and Greer Fredericks (Greer Southern Table), presents The Ultimate Kentucky Derby Block Party, Saturday, May 4, 3-10 PM. Building on the momentum of February’s Mardi Gras Celebration, Rockin’ River Street, a joint venture created by BJ and Greer, the Kentucky Derby block party takes these spirited community events to a whole new level.

Get ready for a day of fun and excitement in a family-friendly setting, complete with a large viewing screen for pre-Derby coverage and “The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports.” Spectators are invited to join in the tradition by dressing in their finest Derby attire and sporting those fabulous over-the-top hats. Dress up for a chance to win the Best Dressed and Best Hat awards. It wouldn’t be a Kentucky Derby party without traditional bourbon-based mint juleps and creative cocktails available in the premium spirit-sponsored cocktail tent. Indulge in southern-inspired foods from Greer Southern Table, Banc House, and Derby eats in the food tent.

Enjoy live music throughout the day, featuring performances by Cherry Pie Band (5-7 PM), Otis and The Hurricanes (8-10 PM), and DJ Boodles between band sets. For those feeling lucky, place your bets at Norwalk’s OTB, located just 50 yards away from the festivities. Parking is available at Yankee Doodle Garage, Zone 2005, on your Park Mobile App.

Date and Time: On Sat, 04 May 2024 at 15:00 – Sat, 04 May 2024 at 22:00
