COVID-19 Refund Policy

The health of our community and staff is of the utmost importance to us. At this point, we are continuing to plan for this event which is scheduled several months from now. Currently, there is not an order in place by government officials that closes our facility in May and we fully intend on proceeding with our event. We have over 400 acres of land at Cedar Lake Cellars and will continue to strategically plan our event to proactively ensure safety as well as adhere to the recommendations made by officials. If a new order is put in place that directly affects our business and event, your tickets will be refunded.

What Happens If It Rains?

This is a rain or shine event (that means we party – and drink – no matter what Mother Nature throws our way).

Interested In Sponsoring Derby Day?

We have a variety of sponsorship opportunities available!
