Compete in the Great Bed Races May 2

The Derby Festival is all about having fun and sometimes, being a little goofy. So this May, while the city is getting ready for the Run for the Roses, participate in the Great Bed Races. Build a bed, wear a costume and be goofy. Why knows? You might win!

Bed Races

Can you put together a team of four? Can you build and decorate a bed on wheels? Will you put on a costume and race that bed right through the city streets, in front of the media and thousands of spectators cheering you on?

Great Bed Races Kentucky Derby

Why not! It's the Great Bed Races and this is really a great time. The races start with the parade of beds and then, competitors will race to see who is the fastest. This is a fun, all-day event that lasts from 1 to 8 pm. The races officially begin at 7 pm.  More than 30 teams will compete and there will be plenty of fun to watch even if you don't race yourself. There is an award for the most entertaining, so you don’t even need to be the fastest to win.

Admission to the Great Bed Races is free with a 2022 Pegasus Pin. Be ready to go off to the races at 937 Philips Lane at the fairgrounds. That's just a few blocks away from Camp Taylor, a neighborhood with an interesting past that could be the setting for your future.

Make Your Permanent Camp in Camp Taylor

Get a look at Camp Taylor and one of the first things you may notice is the memorial park. It's dedicated to the nation's 12th President, Zachary Taylor. He lived in Louisville and this area was named for him. Over 100 years ago, Camp Taylor was a real working military camp. Today, it's a lovely neighborhood with neighbors like the Audubon Country Club, the Louisville Zoo, the Nature Center and Mega Cavern. That's a lot to do around on neighborhood. You'll also find nearby schools, restaurants, shops, gyms and lots more all around Camp Taylor.

Inside the neighborhood itself, it's mostly pretty shade trees and pretty homes. They have multiple bedrooms and bathrooms, plenty of living space for all. The home designs here are both classic and timeless, lovely styles that look charming inside and out. See Camp Taylor this May and see if this is the neighborhood you've been looking for.
