The first shipment of 2020 Kentucky Derby Festival Pegasus Pins is here!
The pins arrived at the Evan Williams Bourbon Experience on Main Street Wednesday morning. It’s the first place you can purchase a 2020 Pegasus Pin beginning today. Heaven Hill Distillery has also produced a special Evan Williams Single Barrel Limited Edition Kentucky Derby Festival bourbon bottle to commemorate the 48th edition of the collectible pins. The bottle features a Gold Pegasus Pin sealed in emerald green wax on the neck of each bottle and a 2020 Pegasus Pin.
Starting March 2, the pins will be available at 1,000 retail locations and will sell for $6 each ($7 at the entrance to events). Pins will be sold in grocery stores, gas stations, banks and other retail outlets around Kentuckiana from Elizabethtown to Louisville and in Southern Indiana, as well as online at PegasusPins.com. Festival Fun Packs with 5 Pegasus Pins also return this year for only $25. Children 6 and under are not required to have a Pegasus Pin for admission to Festival events.
