Each year, thousands of enthusiasts gather to cheer on more than 40 Bed Racing Teams. Each team of five builds a bed on wheels, decorates it, dresses in a ridiculous costume—and then races on their bed. Bed Race teams compete to win in 4 different areas: Fastest Course Times, Best Decorated, Most Entertaining, and the Cone Eater Award.

SCHEDULE:
4:00 PM: Official Tailgate Party
6:00 PM: Parade of the Beds
7:00 PM: Races Begin

2018 Theme: “Race for the Cause”
To help encourage all the racers, Kentucky Derby Festival and Thorntons will make a cash donation to the cause or charity represented by the first place winners.

Admission: FREE with 2018 Pegasus Pin®
