KENTUCKY BOURBON FESTIVAL
The 17th annual Kentucky Bourbon Festival will be held in Bardstown, from September 16 to 21. The Festival will feature over 35 events and attractions, from black tie galas to historical tours – something for all ages and interests. The Festival has been named one of the top events by Southeast Tourism Society, Business First and The Kentucky Tourism Council. Begun in 1992 as a Bourbon tasting and dinner, the Festival has grown with the leadership and support of the members of the Kentucky Distillers Association – Barton Brands Ltd., Brown Forman, Buffalo Trace Distillery, Four Roses Distillery, Heaven Hill Distilleries Inc., Jim Beam Brands, Maker’s Mark Distillery, and Wild Turkey Distillery, plus the Independent Stave Company. Additional major sponsor includes Kentucky Bourbon brand Bulleit Bourbon.
