Bardstown, Kentucky is the Bourbon Capital of the World® and the home of the Kentucky Bourbon Festival®, which draws people to our quaint little town for a week of celebrating the storied history and art of distilling America’s native spirit. The Kentucky Bourbon Festival® began in 1991 as a Bourbon tasting and dinner and has grown tremendously over the past 29 years. Today, it is one of the Commonwealth’s leading community festivals and is not only a celebration of Bourbon but also the people and the community that has supported the industry for generations.
