Dubbed the world’s largest bourbon festival, the event is “an annual celebration of the craftsmanship behind award-winning bourbons, master distillers, legendary musicians, world-class chefs, and an unforgettable showcase of the soul and spirit of Louisville, held during Bourbon Heritage Month.”
“Bourbon & Beyond is our love letter to the city of Louisville and the great state of Kentucky,” founder Danny Wimmer said in a statement. “We can’t wait to showcase why Louisville has become our home away from home, so having the opportunity to curate an unbelievable festival experience rooted in amazing musical performances combined with our passion for bourbon and culinary arts is our dream come true.”
