Bluegrass and Bourbon caps off the season

August 30, 2013 by  

The Kentucky Bluegrass and Bourbon Festival will take place in Louisville this weekend with an anticipated attendance of thousands of people from surrounding regions, no doubt including Crescent Springs.

In the past, events have consisted of BBQ, bluegrass music, burgoo, and all sorts of other fun for attendees to enjoy. This year gets even more, with the addition of bourbon straight from Kentucky heritage. Popular bourbons will be on hand, along with some unique craft option attesting to the reputation of the state being the world’s bourbon capitol.

Kids’ activities will include inflatables and other popular attractions. Set along the riverfront, bands from across the country will perform throughout the three-day weekend. Some of the popular regional performers include Flickertail Holler, Hickory and Friends, Hog Operation, Russell Moor, and Illrd Tyme Out.

Vendors will be participating, offering food items, gifts, crafts, and other items, and applications to sell at the event are available online. Frequently vendors work with local print companies and order banner printing. Banners are often hung either in the back wall of a booth or in front of the tables, and are often chosen because they can be used multiple times.

The festival is scheduled for August 31 to September 2 at the Louisville Water Tower. Admission is $8 if arriving before 6:00 pm, or $11.00 if after. Kids under the age of 10 are admitted free, and there is no charge to park either. For more information, visit the festival website or call 502-583-0333.
