The 2024 festival features expanded opportunities for bourbon enthusiasts to engage with the most sought-after brands alongside engaging and immersive educational experiences. A newer feature is that all bourbon sampling is included in festival passes. On top of that, ticketed guests will be able to purchase bottles directly from their favorite distilleries at the festival. There will be access to panels with industry experts, more than 30 unique bourbon-themed marketplace vendors, food trucks and the annual Master Distillers’ Bottle Auction. Bourbon enthusiasts can also purchase 20 unique single barrel offerings in the Kentucky Bourbon Festival’s Distillers’ Row Series — double last year’s options. All bottles will be available for purchase through Justins’ House of Bourbon locations in Louisville and Lexington, beginning in late August and throughout the festival weekend at the KBF Bottle Shop.
