It’s Louisiana Derby Week, with the 106th Louisiana Derby slated for Saturday, March 23, 2019, at Fair Grounds Race Course. Brush up on the race’s history here in our guide that we contributed to Lady and the Track and US Racing last year. Back again this year for Derby Day will be the Woodford Reserve tent and the Fashion at the Races fashion contest.
On Thursday evening, the first Taste of the Louisiana Derby Celebrity Chef and Charity Gala benefiting the Ronald McDonald House Charities of South Louisiana will be held at The Cannery. More information about the event and tickets is available here.
