The Kentucky Bourbon Festival is celebrating its 30th anniversary in style, bringing in its next decade with a new look and new format.
The organisers of KBF recently unveiled a new logo that includes iconic imagery which draws upon the festival’s history, using a Bourbon barrel head and the outline of its home state, Kentucky. The logo also recognises the 30th anniversary of this well-loved event and its home in Bardstown, KY: the Bourbon capital of the world.
Alongside the new-look logo, in December the event organisers announced 2021’s festival dates and plans to create unique opportunities to celebrate whiskey at KBF. Set to take place from September 16 – 19, 2021, tickets will go on sale later on this year.
“Over the past year, we’ve completely revamped the Kentucky Bourbon Festival to provide expanded opportunities to interact with the nation’s top Bourbon brands,” said David Mandell, chairman of the Kentucky Bourbon Festival. “We could not be more excited to unveil our new format to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the festival.”
Some highlights that you can expect during the September festival include an expanded tasting experience, with heritage and craft brands, a vintage and rare Bourbon auction, and the annual World Champion Bourbon Barrel Relay Race competition. You will also be able to enjoy exclusive conversations with industry all-stars, and unique culinary and cocktail classes.
“We’re excited to deliver an improved and truly authentic, world-class celebration of America’s native spirit,” said Randy Prasse, president and COO of the Kentucky Bourbon Festival. “We’re looking forward to welcoming Bourbon lovers back to Bardstown, a small town as historic as Bourbon itself.”
