Begun in 1992 as a Bourbon tasting and dinner, The Kentucky Bourbon Festival has grown with the leadership and support of the members of the Kentucky Distillers Association – Buffalo Trace Distillery, Four Roses Distillery, Heaven Hill Distilleries Inc., Jim Beam Brands, Maker’s Mark Distillery, Tom Moore Distillery, Wild Turkey Distillery, and Woodford Reserve Distillery plus the Independent Stave Company. Additional major sponsors include Kentucky Bourbon brands – Bulleit Bourbon and Blantons. Many other sponsors are also listed on our web site.

Today it is one of the Commonwealth’s leading community festivals, saluting and showcasing the Bourbon making process and the storied history of Kentucky’s renowned industry. Many distilleries, plus genuine Kentucky arts and crafters, display their wares…on the lawn of Spalding Hall from Friday evening through Sunday.
