Thunder VIP Rooftop Party

You can hear the rumble, but can you feel it?  The boom from Thunder Over Louisville is even bigger when the view is one of a kind. Rated as one of the top fireworks shows in America, the Kentucky Derby Festival’s Opening Ceremonies is a sight to behold, especially when you have a front row seat.

Boasting one of the country’s top air shows and largest annual fireworks spectaculars, spaces for exclusive viewing at Thunder go quickly.  They’re some of the hottest tickets in town.

No one can claim a better seat in the city for the show than the group behind the event – the Kentucky Derby Festival. Our exclusive Thunder Over Louisville VIP Rooftop Party Presented by Louisville Muhammad Ali International Airport is the only place to be on Thunder day.  With catered meals, full bar and day-long entertainment, it’s the ultimate in southern hospitality.

When gravity-defying aircraft take flight over the Louisville skyline, the Thunder VIP Rooftop Party proves to be the best view on the river. From the air show to the finale of the fireworks, the Thunder VIP Rooftop Party treats guests to a one of a kind view of this quintessential Louisville event. The party will have you out of your seat for the day and on the edge of your seat when the fireworks light up the sky.

With catered meals featuring local Kentucky Proud ingredients, a full bar, and day-long entertainment, it’s the ultimate in southern hospitality!
