    “When will our whole city be open again?”

    My three-year-old son asked that recently. And it’s what we’re all wondering after an avalanche of closures and cancelations, all stemming from the danger and fear surrounding COVID-19.

    Before the Louisville Magazine office emptied, before we had ever uttered that awful oxymoron “social distancing,” our editors and contributors were finishing up a massive and celebratory Derby issue, our largest ever. Weeks ago, though, even before the Derby had been postponed to September, we knew we had to pause and rethink all of that content.

    Now, sheltering and working from home, we’ve reshaped the issue to reflect this uncertain moment. 

    Springtime without the Derby. It’s wild to think about. And we hope you’ll share your thoughts.

    We’ve found ourselves asking lots of questions. What do you think about the Derby being postponed to September? What is Louisville without the Derby? How does Derby affect you financially? What Derby-season traditions do you do every year? What will you do on the first Saturday in May this year?

    Ultimately, we want to know: What does the Derby mean to you?

    We’d love to include your response in our re-imagined April issue. We want to connect with you — through this question and more in the days and weeks to come — even if we are all distanced.
