Tours through some of Kentucky's famous thoroughbred farms will also be available. Festival hours are 1-9 pm daily. Lexington boasts a trolley service that has both north-south and east-west routes making it easy to travel between hotels, restaurants and the Festival.

We hope to see you in Lexington!
