Derby Day Attire Suggestions

Canadian Derby is all about dressing to impress! Here are some suggestions to help you celebrate the spirit of the day in a way that’s comfortable:


Bold and pastel coloured dresses and suits serve as traditional Derby day attire. Hats and fascinators are considered an essential part of the ensemble and high heels are always a stylish way to complete your outfit (but it’s always a good idea to pack a comfortable pair of shoes).


To obtain that ideal derby look, we recommend light summer suits and sport coats, khakis or dress pants, light-colored shirts and smart, colourful neck or bow ties. Hats are key to finishing off the look.

For those watching from the infield we advise that you bring bug spray, sunglasses, and sunscreen to best enjoy the whole day without annoyance.
