Hats & Horses - Derby Day in Niagara

On the hooves of last year’s success, Hats & Horses – Niagara Derby Day returns to the Meridian Centre on May 4 as Canada’s largest Kentucky Derby party.

Fashion, flair, furlongs, and fundraising, are the highlights at Niagara’s take on the world’s largest cocktail party with live horse racing broadcast during the event, including the big race – the ‘Run for the Roses’ where live wagering is available to those in attendance.


In addition to the “most exciting two minutes in sports”, the style and fashion is a signature piece of the Kentucky Derby, with guests known for donning bold prints, pastel colours, and wild hats.

Join us on Saturday, May 4th dressed in Kentucky Derby Style to enjoy the races, place a wager, and sip a mint julep at the Meridian Centre in the heart of downtown St Catharines. In memory of the late Jan R. Cook, this event will support 3 local charities – Community Care St Catharines-Thorold, FACS Niagara, and Niagara Children’s Centre. Visit
