Kentucky Bourbon Festival pushes back date

Kentucky Bourbon Festival
The Kentucky Bourbon Festival takes place in Bardstown.

The Kentucky Bourbon Festival has been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Festival organizers announced Tuesday the event would take place from Oct. 15 to Oct. 18, one month later than originally planned.

“We are regaining 30 days of planning with this decision. We feel that with this short delay, we have time to still produce a quality event – and do it safely. We will continue to monitor the CDC, the Governor’s office and the tourism industry, and implement our own best practices developed over our 29 years in existence,” KBF President and COO Randy Prasse said. “Unlike some of our region’s larger events, we are smaller and more agile and can make decisions a lot closer to the target. If we do have to cancel the event, we will but we owe it to our supporters and bourbon industry partners to make every effort to produce the 2020 Festival.”
