For years, that’s how Louisville has celebrated the last days of summer.
Kentucky Bluegrass & Bourbon Experience will again feature all of your favorites – 3 days of incredible live bluegrass music from musicians across the country, barbecue, a craft vendor tent, plus the chance to enjoy some of the area’s most popular bourbons – and even taste a few of the unique craft bourbons that help make Kentucky the bourbon capitol of the world.

There’s no better place to toast summer good-bye than the Kentucky Bluegrass & Bourbon Experience. We can’t wait to see you there!

Bands and Schedule

Since 2000, the Bluegrass genre has experienced an explosion of popularity nationwide. Nowhere is that more powerfully demonstrated than right here in our own Kentucky bluegrass-grown backyards. Kentucky Bluegrass & Bourbon Experience captures the essence of what has made it so popular-a musical experience that comes from the soul in a way that grabs your ears and your heart and simply won't let go.
