First held in 1957, the second year of the Kentucky Derby Festival, the They're Off! Luncheon serves as the time-honored kickoff to each year's Festival. This year, ESPN reporter Erin Andrews, who is also a correspondent for ABC's Good Morning America, will be the keynote speaker for the 56th annual luncheon. Andrews will address approximately 1,800 Derby Festival supporters and patrons in attendance for this community tradition, which begins at 11:30 a.m. in the Grand Ballroom of the Galt House East Hotel, site of the festive event since 1974.
