The Original
Denver Derby Party

OFTEN IMITATED, NEVER REPLICATED – The Original Denver Derby Party, now in its 16th year, is the biggest of its kind outside Kentucky. Held annually on the first Saturday in May, and spread out over 4 blocks in Downtown Denver, it has become a Colorado tradition. 100% of all ticket proceeds benefit the Sean Ranch Lough-Foundation, which provides 4 year college scholarships to underprivileged students.

DerbyParty Photo Gallery

Here are a few of our favorite shots from years past. You can see all 3000+ photos we have by visiting our Photo Gallery.

We definitely have the best dressed and most stylish crowd each and every year, in fact we think DerbyParty is the best looking crowd we’ve ever seen anywhere. Check out all the photos and we think you’ll agree.

Interested in sponsoring DerbyParty?

Most sponsors renew each year but we still have several Platinum & Premiere Level openings, and just 1 Private Tent available. Contact us today for more information.

This is what it’s all about

100% Proceeds Benefit Sean ‘Ranch’ Lough Memorial Scholarship

Sean Lough (AKA ‘Ranch’) was a dear friend, brother and son who tragically passed away in 2001 as a result of a mountain biking accident. The scholarship given in his name helps an individual exemplifying the qualities Ranch had, including a high GPA, an economic need and most of all a hearty personality and a love for life.

Your Patronage Matters!

Check out these incredible stories, as told by each of our award recipients

While DerbyParty is definitely fun (even in the rain), the real reason for putting on this fund raiser is so young adults, like our scholarship recipients, get the education they so richly deserve. A BIG thank you to all our guests, our sponsors, and volunteers who supported this great cause, your donation helped make three dreams possible and forever changed lives.

We can’t wait to see what the future holds for this year’s recipients of the Sean ‘Ranch’ Lough Memorial Scholarship!

A Big THANK YOU to All Denver Derby Party Sponsors!

With their help we have been able to keep ticket prices the same for 7 years. They also contribute greatly to our Scholarship Foundation.
