The Kentucky Bourbon Festival (Sept. 13-15, 2024) is a celebration of Kentucky Bourbon and the Bourbon Capital of the World, Bardstown, Kentucky.

What began as a bourbon tasting dinner has grown into a truly unique experience one cannot have anywhere else. The festival features over 50 of Kentucky’s top distilleries and attracts bourbon enthusiasts from across the United States and around the world. In 2023, approximately 85% of our guests visited from outside of Kentucky. First held in 1992, the Kentucky Bourbon Festival is one of the Commonwealth’s leading cultural festivals – showcasing “America’s Native Spirit”.
