Bourbon Street

New Bourbon Festival Coming to Northern Kentucky

Fall 2019 will be a very exciting time for NKY and its neighbor, Cincinnati! Kentucky's Edge--a new bourbon festival--is coming to the Ohio river's banks on October 4th and 5th. Billed as "The South by Southwest of Bourbon", the Kentucky's Edge festival promises to be a celebration of everything Kentucky-centric with a unique bourbon twist.

Imagine this, an exciting FREE music festival on the Covington Riverfront, a special Kentucky artisan market in historic MainStrasse Village, national music acts at the Madison Theater and a one of a kind bourbon conference at the Northern Kentucky Convention Center. Add in unique tour offerings at all of our region's Kentucky Bourbon Trail Craft Tour® Distilleries and Kentucky's Edge could be your best bet for a unique bourbon weekend in the Edge of Bourbon Country.

One of the neatest offerings during Kentucky's Edge are the signature bourbon lunches, brunches, dinners and tastings with distillers that will be hosted during the festival. Visit the Kentucky's Edge website to build your experience.
