Tickets are now on sale for September’s Kentucky Bourbon Festival, organizers of the event recently announced.
The 2022 festival will bring scores of bourbon enthusiasts to Bardstown, Kentucky, to celebrate the history and craft of the spirit during National Bourbon Heritage Month.
The Kentucky Bourbon Festival is slated for Sept. 16th-18th in this, its 31st year.
“We’re excited to welcome guests and distilleries back to Bardstown for the Kentucky Bourbon Festival,” said Randy Prasse, president and COO of Kentucky Bourbon Festival, in a prepared statement. “We are looking forward to building on the successful festival format we unveiled last year with exciting updates based on feedback from our guests. Bourbon lovers will have three days to experience new products, meet distillers, attend programs and enjoy an experience they will not get anywhere else.”
The 2022 festival will see expanded opportunities for bourbon enthusiasts to engage with some of the most sought-after brands alongside immersive educational experiences.
New this year, all bourbon sampling is included in 2022 festival passes. And for the first time, ticketed guests will be able to purchase bottles directly from their favorite distilleries at the festival.
Festival tickets also include unlimited access to the event from Friday through Sunday, panels with industry experts, access to more than 30 unique bourbon-themed marketplace vendors, food trucks and the annual Master Distillers’ Bottle Auction.
Visitors will also be able to purchase 20 unique single barrel offerings in the Kentucky Bourbon Festival’s Distillers’ Row Series — twice as much as last year. 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 Festival’s Bottle Shop.
