Berkeley Hat Company is the largest hat retailer in the country. We have been in business since 1980.

Come back often!
We put hats on sale all the time.




We have a huge variety of Kentucky Derby hats!

Derby Hats were just as noticeable at the Royal Wedding as they are at the Kentucky Derby itself. The Royal Ascot and Kentucky Derby have had a huge influence on world hat fashion. It's no wonder they are the theme for many parties!

We have the unusual, the elegant, the edgy - something to enhance your experience at The Kentucky Derby, always starting the first Saturday of May, or for Preakness. Or for the Downs or The Belmont Stakes in June. The Oaks or even the Del Mar races or Santa Anita. And, of course, we can't forget that most elegant of races: Britain's Royal Ascot in June, from Tuesday through Saturday in June's third week. Highlights of Royal Ascot are the Prince of Wales Stakes, Gold Cup Day or "Ladies Day", during which Masterpieces of Millinery are showcased, and the Diamond Jubilee Stakes on the final day.

In July at The Del Mar Racetrack you will find "The One and Only Truly Fabulous Hats Contest". Wear your smart dress-casual chapeau if you're going to The Turf Club at the Summer Meet at Golden Gate Fields (right here in Berkeley!) starting in August. Be sure to wear your fabulous hat to Opening Day at Santa Anita in September and Breeder's Cup in November. "Hats Off To Saratoga Festival" in July is the first weekend of racing at the Saratoga Race Course in Downtown Saratoga Springs, New York. Don't miss the Hat Contest!
