What is a Pegasus Pin Sponsorship?

Why Buy A Pegasus Pin?

The Pegasus Pin sponsorship program began as an awareness campaign for the Derby Festival in 1973. At that time, only 10,000 of the plastic pins were produced. The 1973 version of the pin is valued at $800-$1,000 and it’s rare to find them.

Since then, the pins have become one of the primary sources of funding for Derby Festival events. A pin sponsorship investment is a way fans can support the Kentucky Derby Festival, a not-for-profit organization providing world-class entertainment. More than 250,000 of the pins are produced each year.

The 2019 Pegasus Pin Program is more exciting than ever and offers more opportunities to WIN PRIZES.

Why a Pegasus?

The Pegasus Pin was modeled after the Kentucky Derby Festival’s traditional symbol of the Pegasus, which was established with the very first Pegasus Parade (The Pegasus Parade was also the event that started it all!).
