Kentucky Derby Festival: The Fillies Derby Ball
The Fillies Derby Ball® event benefits the Kentucky Derby Festival Foundation.
It is Louisville’s only Coronation Ball which started in 1958. This will be the 56th ball which was created one year prior to the organization of The Fillies, Inc. The Fillies Inc. is celebrating its 57th year.
One of the Kentucky Derby Festival’s oldest and most anticipated events is The Fillies Derby Ball. This event caps the opening day of the Derby Festival and is a prelude to two weeks of excitement and activities.
The highlight of the Derby Ball is the coronation of the Derby Festival Queen, to be selected by the traditional spin-of-the wheel. Linda Miller, 2016 Fillies President, will do the honors. In her first royal act, the Queen will “knight” individuals to the Court of the Pegasus for their contributions to the community.
