Ky Bourbon Festival

Kentucky Bourbon Festival

With unique and updated offerings, the 30th annual Kentucky Bourbon Festival will take place Sept. 16-19, 2021. Held in the Bourbon Capital of the World, the festival draws bourbon lovers to Bardstown, Kentucky, each year to celebrate the storied history of distilling America’s native spirit during National Bourbon Heritage Month. The 2021 festival will feature expanded opportunities for bourbon enthusiasts to engage with the most sought-after brands and engaging educational experiences.

Highlights of September’s festival include an expanded tasting experience with heritage and craft brands, a vintage and rare bourbon auction and the annual World Championship Bourbon Barrel Relay Race bourbon barrel rolling competition. Exclusive conversations with industry all-stars and unique culinary and cocktail classes will provide interactive sessions for attendees to enjoy. 

What began as a Bourbon tasting dinner has grown into a truly authentic experience that brings together bourbon enthusiasts from all over the world. The Kentucky Bourbon Festival is one of the Commonwealth’s leading cultural festivals. For more information, visit www.kybourbonfestival.com
