Welcome to the 2017 Kentucky Derby Festival Thorntons Great Bed Races!
Grab four co-workers, neighbors or friends to enter a bed in the 28th Annual Kentucky Derby Festival Great Bed Races - lets get rolling! The 2017 Great Bed Races will be held at Broadbent Arena at the Kentucky Exposition Center on Monday, May 1, 2017.
As always, the 2017 Great Bed Races will feature a theme from which participants can model their costumes and bed designs. The theme of this year’s event is "Louisville on the Move". Leave no limit to your imagination and have fun with your creative side! No costume or design is too outlandish for the Kentucky Derby Festival’s wackiest event.
A special thanks to our Title Sponsor, Thorntons and our Contributing Sponsors, Ashley Furniture and Safelite AutoGlass. Also a special thanks to our media partner, 107.7 The Eagle and of course our broadcast partner Wave 3.
