Make sure you bring your wallet to Tulips & Juleps in order to bid on our Art Auction, sign up for Lawn Games, or to bet on Kentucky Derby Horses!

All bets get you a chance to WIN cash while supporting STRiVE’s children services, and the BEST way to win is to know your horses. 

Check the odds and meet the horses HERE.


Come hungry! Because it wouldn’t be a Tulips & Juleps without great food and drinks! Make sure you enjoy the mixer beforehand as well! Heavy hors d’oeuvres, mint juleps, cocktails, wine, and beer!


The Tulips and Juleps Derby Party is our most successful fundraising event, raising over $40,000 for STRiVE’s children services in past years.

Funds will also be used for STRiVE’s children services, which supports children and adults on the autism spectrum.

By supporting Tulips & Juleps, you will be helping educate the public about the importance of early intervention services for children with developmental delays and disabilities, and providing services to families struggling to support children with autism.

One hundred percent of the money raised through this event will stay right here in Mesa County.

Thanks to the  Tulips & Juleps committee for planning and managing all of the activities from the Lawn Games to the betting system, silent auction, party favors, table decorations, ticket sales, sponsorships, PLUS creating the menu and cocktails! Without you, we could not do this!
