MPI Potomac 8th Annual Derby Days & Silent Auction

In the tradition with the Annual Kentucky Derby - Run for the Roses we invite you to join us for the 8th Annual MPI Potomac Derby Days. An exciting evening that includes our silent auction and “Hat’s on” competition.

The Kentucky Derby is America’s original, extravagant springtime sports party.  To continue building upon a MPI Potomac tradition, we invite you to experience an evening of southern charm and celebration as MPI Potomac teams with the Louisville CVB and The Congressional Club to bring the thrills of the Derby to DC!

Horses! No Derby experience would be complete without an actual race.  So get ready, and post up as all attendees will get to take part in electronic horse races that will be staged throughout the night.

Silent Auction! The betting does not have to stay on the track.  Help support MPI Potomac and gain some great items for yourself via our on line auction.  All you need is your wallet and your smart phone to bid.

Hat’s and Outfits On! as we continue our Derby Days tradition - our hat contest will be in full swing this year. And to add to the fun, judges will be looking at the entire ensemble.  Be sure to where your Derby Best to Win!  So go big or small, contemporary or old-fashioned or just plain fascinating…women and men are welcome to top off their Derby duds with a variety of ostentatious head wear. No hat? No worries- come make one at the event and take it home for a fun keepsake of the evening
