This year’s Kentucky Bourbon Festival that was postponed then moved online gets underway this week.
Registration is free and open for online programs on topics ranging from food and whiskey pairing to the art of whiskey making and putting together cocktails with ordinary supermarket ingredients. There’s also a VIP package available for $150.
Last year’s festival drew some 50,000 visitors from 40 states and more than 20 countries for its activities and concerts, organizers said. For this year’s 29th annual festival, the board decided to shift to a virtual experience because of the coronavirus pandemic.
The festival runs Thursday through Sunday.
