    Print this page

    Yelp Louisville is highlighting the excitement and momentum leading up to Derby with Yelp's Countdown to Derby with a pop-up event series featuring six events over six days.

    Whether residents are in search of great eats, fashion, some Derby de-stressing or even an extra special perch from which to watch the Pegasus Parade, these events have you covered.

    When: Yelp’s Countdown to Derby started Sunday, April 26, and concludes on Friday, May 1.

    The remaining events include:

    Tuesday, April 28: Fashion is as much a part of Derby as horses, and the iconic Derby hat will be celebrated at this event at the Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft with a hat fashion show, hats for sale and a make-your-own-fascinator workshop.

    Wednesday, April 29: Take a break from work and come to the South Fourth Street district downtown to enjoy the best of what some of Louisville's finest food trucks have to offer. Plus each truck is making an extra special dish using Maker's Mark bourbon.

    Thursday, April 30: Why sit on the hard bleachers on Broadway when you can sit under a covered porch, enjoy delicious eats and drinks and take part in activities before and during the Pegasus Parade? The Cafe is playing host to yelpers, with discounted eats and other fun. Bring your family, or bring your coworkers.

    Friday, May 1: Got the day off for Oaks but don't feel like going to the track? Come down to downtown, and go on a photo walk. Use your cameras and smartphones to capture the beauty this city boasts. 

    Who: These events are open to all residents.

    Some events are RSVP-only, and to RSVP, residents must have a Yelp profile — It's free and super fast to set up. — with a real name and real photo. (You can sign up for Yelp here: yelp.com/signup.)

    Where: Various places in the downtown and NuLu areas.
