Kentucky Derby


Since 2014, Arena has partnered with Churchill Downs to produce unique, custom environments for the Kentucky Derby, one of the most elite and historic American sporting traditions dating back to 1875. Constructing this elegant and storied event requires a large selection of traditional and custom tent structures, flooring, tables, chairs and tabletop items to accommodate the over 150,000 fans attending the event annually.
