The Kentucky Derby Festival returns to personal events

COVID-19 sets aside 2 Cowboys coaches for the Thanksgiving game

The festival will produce dozens of events from mid-March through Derby week. Some events will have different dates than in the past, though many, including Thunder Over Louisville, will keep to tradition.

Story Highlights

  • One of the most noticeable is the festival’s founding event, the Pegasus Parade, which will be held on a Sunday for the first time instead of a Thursday. It’s an effort to make it easier for people to attend, Kentucky Derby Festival President and CEO Matt Gibson said in a statement on Wednesday announcing dates for the upcoming celebration.

  • “The past couple of years has given us all a new perspective and that’s been a driving force for the Festival as we’ve been planning for 2022 and beyond,” Gibson said.
