Music. And Lots of it

Traditionally, a Railbird is a horse racing enthusiast known for sticking close to the action, hanging on the rail as each contender comes barreling down the track. For one special weekend in August, the term takes on an added meaning during the 2nd Annual Railbird Festival. 2 days. 3 stages. World class artists.

Enjoy Unique Bourbon
& Culinary Experiences

Railbird celebrates the spirit of Kentucky with highly-curated bourbon experiences in The Rickhouse and up-close culinary demonstrations with Sip & Savor.

Find hand-selected barrels from Kentucky’s finest distilleries in The Rickhouse, chosen in collaboration with co-owners Justin Sloan and Justin Thompson of Lexington’s treasured Justins’ House of Bourbon.

During Sip & Savor demonstrations, enjoy unique culinary experiences with world-renowned chefs in a studio kitchen setting. Samples of the chefs’ creations will be passed around to taste, of course!
