Chefs Down the Homestretch is one of our favorite – and most delicious! – Derby traditions. Area restaurants provide food for Derby guests, allowing more than 800 individuals to sample fare they may have never experienced! Chefs Down the Homestretch is a great way to introduce (or reintroduce) locals to your restaurant.

Additionally, Derby guests can vote on their favorite dish, and the winning restaurant or Chef will take home the coveted Best Chef Trophy!
