Kentucky’s Edge Bourbon Conference & Festival

Retail Sales

When people think of Kentucky, things like horses, bluegrass, and – of course – bourbon come to mind. Soon the new Kentucky’s Edge Bourbon Conference & Festival, planned for the fall 2019 will be added to that list.

Born from a desire to shine a light on the Northern Kentucky region and heritage, the Kentucky’s Edge Bourbon Conference & Festival will take place October 4 and 5, 2019 at venues throughout Covington and Newport, Kentucky just across the river from Cincinnati, Ohio. This inaugural event is designed to share on a local, national, and international scale what makes Northern Kentucky such a special place.

Organizers say Kentucky’s Edge Bourbon Conference & Festival will be like the SXSW for bourbon, with Covington and Newport as the campus. The weekend will include a free music festival on the river, a Kentucky artisan market in MainStrasse Village, and a bourbon conference at the Northern Kentucky Convention Center. There will be bourbon pairings, tastings, and musical performances at restaurants and bars spread out across the two cities.

The main star of the Kentucky’s Edge Bourbon Conference & Festival is, of course, the bourbon. But the event is also meant to celebrate Kentucky’s heritage and culture as a whole.

Local participating distilleries include:

Hotel and ticket packages for the Kentucky’s Edge Bourbon Conference & Festival will go on sale Friday, March 1 at noon. Individual event tickets will be available late March/early April.
