Inaugural Derby Party- May 4th at PublicHouse

  • PublicHouse 418 A Street Springfield United States (map)

Put on your best Derby-wear and come sip on a Mint Julep while enjoying Springfield’s one & only Derby Day! We'll be celebrating by hosting a watch party for "The Greatest Two Minutes in Sports"!

Our infamous Whisk(e)y Lab will be mixing classic Derby cocktails such as Mint Juleps and Horse Necks all day long... featuring Woodford Reserve, the official bourbon of the Kentucky Derby. A portion of every featured cocktail poured will be donated to an amazing local organization, Oregon Horse Rescue.

A photobooth will be on site, stocked full of festive props to show off your dapper outfits. We’ll be holding a "Biggest Hat Competetion" so come wearing your largest, loudest, and flashiest hat for a chance to be dubbed the honor of the Biggest Derby Day Hat. Winner gets awarded a gift pack and bragging rights!
