Rhapsody in Bloom
Run for the Roses
June 15, 2013
5 - 10 pm
This year’s theme, Run for the Roses, will feature the excitement of the Kentucky Derby in Olbrich’s gorgeous outdoor gardens. We’re bringing the spirit of Churchill Downs to Madison with glamorous Derby hats & mint juleps. Our evening begins with hors d’oeuvres and
live music in the Gardens, followed by dinner and
dancing under beautiful white tents as the sun sets over Lake Monona.
Derby attire welcome!
Ladies - Express your inner Southern Belle! Wide-brimmed hats decorated with flowers, feathers, bows, and ribbons of any color, accompanies by pastel-colored suits, frilly dresses, or bold separates.
Gents - Classic styles of seersucker, khaki, or a navy blazer, vibrant shirt colors with a flashy neck or bowtie and a pair of loafers worn sockless, of course! Men's Derby hats are inspired by the style from the 1920s.
