Bring your Southern charm, and the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess will bring the frosty mint juleps. Join the Annual Kentucky Derby Lawn Party at Michael Mina's Bourbon Steak. Experience the "fastest two minutes in sports" during the 144th Run for the Roses on plasma screens both indoors and out. Enjoy festive live music, Bullet bourbon tastings, a photo booth, lawn games and more.
Delight in a classic lunch menu infused with Southern flair by Chef Jeremy McMillan, featuring Kentucky Derby hot browns, Benedictine dip, pickled shrimp toasts, sweet tea brined fried chicken, and much more. Sweet sensations include Derby pie, bourbon bars and red velvet cupcakes.
And because the Derby is just as much about fashion as it is horse racing, Southern belles and gents are encouraged to wear their fanciest hats and sharpest suits to compete for spectacular prizes in a men's and women's Derby hat and fashion contest.
