To our Derby Day Sponsors, benefactors and patrons,
In light of the current outbreak of Covid-19,  Churchill Downs released a statement confirming they will be rescheduling The Kentucky Derby. The new date is September 5th. As much as we would love to reschedule our event for that day, we realize September 5th falls on Labor Day weekend. 
Having an event of this size downtown Swansboro, Labor Day weekend, is simply not feasible with the influx of people already in town for the holiday weekend. That being said, it is with great sadness that we feel we have

to make the decision to cancel The 2020 Swansboro Derby Festival. 
 If our annual sponsors would like to keep their current donations in place to roll to the 2021 Derby,

we are happy to do that. Should you want to request a refund for this year instead, we are happy to oblige. 
Thank you for understanding. We look forward to seeing everyone at our annual Derby event in 2021.

Should you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to GiGi Robles @ 910-382-3141
or Randy Swanson @ 910-467-1781.
