Bourbon & Barbeque Louisville

Introducing the First Annual Bourbon & Barbeque

Location: Big Four Lawn

Tickets On Sale Now: https://bblwaterfront.com/

The epicurean adventure will pair Kentucky distillers with local and celebrated barbeque pitmasters to create a unique culinary experience at Waterfront Park this fall.

The event coincides with Louisville’s Mayor’s Week of Valor supported by the Veterans Community Alliance of Louisville (VCAL). VCAL’s mission is to promote veteran-friendly community relations in Louisville by creating an integrated support network for veterans and their families. More information on the city’s Office for Veterans and the Week of Valor can be found here.

The presentation and the flyover will take place on Friday, November 11 at approximately 4:30 p.m. Event organizers are also honored to welcome several pitmasters who have served in the U.S. military in different capacities.

$20 from each ticket sold will benefit the event’s nonprofit partners – VFW Post 1170, Waterfront Park, and Apron, Inc.

Bourbon & Barbeque will build upon the growing Bourbonism brand crafted by the city of Louisville and Louisville Tourism and reinforce its reputation as the beating heart of bourbon craft and culture. The vibrant city is home to 10 distillery experiences and the Urban Bourbon Experience, a citywide trail that’s filled with award-winning micro-distilleries, exhibits, and craft cocktail destinations.

The event introduces 20+ pitmasters/chefs and 20+ Kentucky distilleries in one place. Each pitmaster/chef is encouraged to prepare a dish using smoke & fire and offer this in what will be called a “chef’s kiss” portion (2 – 3 oz. max). The distillers will create a bourbon-based 4-oz. cocktail to complement the “chef’s kiss.”

Bourbon & Barbeque Louisville will take place at Louisville’s Waterfront Park, at the Swing Garden and The Big Four Lawn, November 11 & 12, 2022. Tickets range from $250-$400 all-inclusive and are on sale now. People are encouraged to use the hashtag #BBLWaterfront.
