Circle Events in conjunction with PNC Bank are thrilled to present “The 2023 Detroit Kentucky Derby Day Party” on the grounds of The Detroit Zoo. Hosting this Gala at such a palatial venue creates the perfect ambiance for what we feel will be our best Derby Experience yet …

The Detroit Zoo features a massive footprint as we’ll utilize the entire South Grounds including The Events Pavilion, Wildlife Interpretive Gallery Rooftop Restaurant, Dining Tent, Cigar Coves plus so much more. The space offers a tremendous array of seating and will include 2 dance areas, multiple bars, food options along with an array of local vendors.

We are pleased to inform you that everyone attending will enjoy Complimentary Parking. The Zoo’s enormous lot will also provide direct access to the Derby Entrance Gates resulting in an effortless walk from your vehicle.

So, make firm plans to join us amongst the wildlife for Detroit's most anticipated Day Party as we’re pulling out all the stops for this one - also, don’t be surprised if you witness a quick cameo by our friend Harry the Giraffe or Lola the Peacock …
