Treplus Communities to Celebrate The Kentucky Derby

2021 Kentucky Derby Party

Giddyup! Treplus Communities is hosting a Kentucky Derby Party at three Central Ohio locations on Saturday, May 1, 2021.  Treplus Communities will be celebrating the "greatest two minutes in sports" with a celebration for residents and invited guests in Dublin, Delaware, and Pickerington. Guests will gallop on over to patio behind The Commons, and then we’ll take the reins. The event is from 6 7:30 p.m., and the race starts at 7:01 p.m. 

Social engagement is one of the most important amenities for residents of Treplus Communities.  Live and virtual events create connections and opportunities for active adults to stay engaged in many aspects socially.

Best Dressed and Most Creative Hat Contests

Each community will be looking forward to greeting guests in their nicest Kentucky Derby outfits and hats. In fact, we’re hosting a contest for the best dressed and most creative hat at the event.

History of The Kentucky Derby

There are few American sporting events with the history and popularity of the Kentucky Derby. It’s rich traditions – sipping a mint julep, donning a beautiful hat, and joining fellow race fans in singing “My Old Kentucky Home” – transcend the Kentucky Derby from just a sporting event, making it a celebration of southern culture and a true icon of Americana. The Kentucky Derby is the longest running sporting event in the United States, dating back to 1875.  The race is often referred to as "The Run for the Roses®" and  has continuously produced “the most exciting two minutes in sports”; uninterrupted, even when coinciding with profound historical events like The Great Depression and World Wars I & II.
