- On the first weekend of May, Churchill Downs hosts the Kentucky Derby. Fans of horse racing visiting Louisville at other times can sample Derby excitement and have a day at the races for a significantly lower ticket price (usually $3, except on special event days). Place your bets (helpful signs provide bet-placing instructions to newbies) and try a mint julep, the official drink of Churchill Downs. Visit the Kentucky Derby Museum to learn about Derby history and get a tour of Churchill Downs and the barns.
