Family Fun Days presented by KrogerSundays, During the Live Racing Meets

Churchill Downs celebrates the pageantry, excitement and thrill of horseracing every Sunday with family-focused activities during Family Fun Days presented by Kroger. Kiddos 12 and younger are invited to enjoy games, crafts, visits from Churchill Charlie, and special weekly events on the Plaza Balcony. Family Fun Days will take place from 11:30am - 4:00pm every Sunday.

You and your child are personally invited to join the fun and stop by the next time you visit Churchill Downs. We will create on-the-spot fun and maybe even a souvenir to take home. Laughter, smiles and good times are the odds on favorites while visiting the Junior Jockey Club.

The Junior Jockey Club location will be open Saturdays (except Downs After Dark nights) in the Club location near Gate 10. 

"Like" the Churchill Downs page on Facebook and post a story or picture about your child's visit!

All "Junior Jockeys" must be accompanied, at all times, by a parent or guardian. The JJC is a real "Kids Zone" and is dedicated entirely to providing fun for the young at Churchill Downs!
