What's a Railbird?

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.

This summer, the term will take on added meaning with a brand new music festival in Lexington, KY. 2 days. Multiple stages. World class artists. All at the historic grounds of Keeneland.

Railbird will celebrate the unrivaled culture and traditions of the Bluegrass State at the historic Keeneland Racecourse. A Kentucky experience, through and through, Railbird will be a truly one-of-a-kind event. The festival will be woven into the course grounds to create an unforgettable and immersive weekend centered around music, bourbon, equine culture and Lexington tradition.


Located in the Horse Capital of the World, Keeneland is an internationally renowned racecourse, a National Historic Landmark, and a beautiful gathering place for the local community. Founded in 1936, Keeneland’s gorgeous park-like grounds are open to visitors year-round.
