  • Mint Randolph 2730 Randolph Road Charlotte, NC, 28207 United States (map)

Derby Days is a long-standing, award-winning event that has been named the “Best Party for Young Professionals” by the Charlotte Observer and “Best Young Professional Party” by Society Charlotte magazine. Derby Days has also been recognized by the Charlotte Agenda, Charlotte Magazine, Charlotte Style, Scoop Charlotte, and more, in addition to being hosted by the "Best YP Organization" of Charlotte (us!), according to CharlotteFive!

Derby Days brings together more than 400 of Charlotte’s young professionals to enjoy a day of live music; lawn games; Makers Mark Mint Juleps; open wine and beer; food trucks; and a large-screen viewing of the Kentucky Derby, dubbed “The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports.” 

New in 2018: We've added a VIP ticket! This exclusive experience is only available to a limited number of guests and includes preferred seating at the Kentucky Derby viewing, one complimentary cocktail ticket, a swag bag, and other fabulous giveaways.
