Have an Oaks Day Brunch May 3

Oaks Day has started to become a big event for the city, though nothing will be as famous as the Kentucky Derby itself. Celebrate Oaks Day this year in a historic neighborhood that was young when Churchill Downs was first built. Wear your hat if you like and eat what you like at the Oaks Day Brunch at the Conrad-Caldwell House Museum while you enjoy a day of activities and beautiful sights.

Oaks Day Brunch

The Conrad-Caldwell House Museum, a beautiful Victorian-era historic home, is hosting this special event. You will feast on a delicious meal provided by a local caterer while you listen to classic Kentucky folk and bluegrass music. Bluegrass music is a staple of the state and it has a long tradition here, just like horse racing itself.

Brunch tickets include mint juleps, of course, along with lily cocktails, a drink invented just for the Oaks. You'll have a chance to watch the races and to explore the fascinating and beautiful mansion, a lovely example of what homes in Old Louisville are like. This neighborhood was built at the end of the Victorian Era by some of the city's wealthiest residents, people who made their fortunes off the growing horseracing and bourbon industries. They built grand homes where every single detail was hand-wrought, carefully carved and lovingly crafted.

Go to 1402 St. James Court for brunch from 10 am to 2 pm. And after you've done eating, take a few minutes to take a look around at this stunning neighborhood.

A New Adventure in Old Louisville

Old Louisville homes are some of the best examples of Victorian architecture you can find anywhere in the entire country. These homes were designed to be comfortable and ornate everywhere, and those features still remain. But these homes have been modernized, too. You will find updated lighting and plumbing, of course, along with much more modern features that today's homeowners want. It’s a beautiful mix of the old and the new, and it makes the homes here truly unique.

The neighborhood is just a short distance away from downtown Louisville and all the attractions there, which means you'll be within spitting distance of the best restaurants, museums and shopping you can find anywhere. Have an adventure in Old Louisville this May and who knows? Maybe next year, you'll be hosting a Derby party for your home here.
