2011 Kentucky Derby Museum Hat Contest Winners Announcement

by admin on June 23, 2011


For Immediate Release:

(Louisville, KY: June 22, 2011) Congratulations to one of this year’s Kentucky Derby Museum Hat Contest winners, Cynthia Webb of Johnstown, CO. The museum received over 50 hat entries and of those entries only 20 hats were selected for display.

Webb’s hat was designed by her and exudes elegance with a pink flower accent and black and white feathers.

Hats are essential to the Kentucky Derby experience. Choosing the right hat for the occasion is as important as betting on the right horse. On Derby day fancy hats, themed hats and goofy hats unite to uphold the long standing tradition. The Derby Museum glorifies this tradition by bringing the hat experience right to our visitors. Our Derby Hat Contest winners display a broad range of designer and novelty men and women’s hats showcasing trending styles.

A photo of Webb’s hat is attached to this release. Webb’s hat is one of 20 currently on display in the It’s My Derby exhibit and will stay there until June, 2012.

For more information about our hat contest and/or our exhibit contact Gwendolyn Carnighan at the telephone number or email address below.
