Run for the Roses Wine Walk

Saturday, May 7th, 2022 1pm – 5pm

Broadway District

Stop down and enjoy wine samples at participating businesses during the Run for the Roses Wine Walk, presented by Unison Credit Union. The event falls on the same day as the Kentucky Derby so why not theme this event accordingly!  This is a fantastic way to enjoy tastings from local wineries while visiting businesses and exploring the Broadway District. You can shop for unique products in the many boutiques shops, restaurants and other district venues.  At the end of your wine tour, swing by Old Fort Square to build a beautiful  bouquet of flowers to take home and enjoy, just in time for Mother’s Day!

Dress in your best pantsuit, cocktail dress, or business formal attire. You’ll want to accessorize accordingly. Pearls and a stunning Derby hat are both a must. 

After the wine walk join us for the VIP Kentucky Derby viewing party upstairs at The Depot which will include Kentucky Derby inspired cocktails, hors d’oeuvre, live music, best dressed and best hat contests and of course the horse races!  The VIP Party will run from 4pm – 7pm with the big race at 4:45pm.
