Session Description: The Kentucky Derby Festival is a two-week celebration of 70 events that requires over 4,000 volunteers, 21 full-time staff members, and a 75-member Board of Directors. The story of the Festival and its place in the community spans over 60 years, from its early beginnings as a nighttime parade, to the spectacle it is today entertaining 1.5 million people annually.
