Annual Kentucky Derby Lawn Party

With hospitality at the heart of everything we do, we are committed to taking care of people. The health of our valued guests is of the utmost importance to us, and the safety of you and your loved ones is our absolute priority. Please note, in light of the latest recommendations by the CDC, the resort will not be hosting our annual springtime gatherings of Easter Brunch, Cinco de Mayo or Mother's Day Brunch. Kentucky Derby and the kick-off to Summer #AtThePrincess will be postponed at this time. From our Fairmont family to yours, we wish you all a safe spring season.

Bring your Southern charm, and we'll bring the frosty mint juleps. Join the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess for our Sixth Annual Kentucky Derby Lawn Party at Michael Mina's Bourbon Steak. Experience the "fastest two minutes in sports" during the 146th Run for the Roses on plasma screens both indoors and out. Enjoy festive live music, Bulleit bourbon tastings, a photo booth, lawn games and more.
 
And because the Derby is just as much about fashion as it is horse racing, Southern belles and gents are encouraged to wear their fanciest hats and sharpest suits to compete for spectacular prizes in our men's and women's Derby hat and fashion contest.

*Complimentary Red-Carpet Valet
