Railbird just wouldn’t be a Kentucky festival without Bourbon. The Rickhouse is a highly- curated Bourbon experience, with hand-selected barrels from Kentucky’s finest distilleries and immersive whiskey experiences. Bourbon Barrel selections will be chosen in collaboration with co-owners Justin Sloan and Justin Thompson of Lexington’s treasured Justins’ House of Bourbon, a well-known stomping grounds for bourbon beginners, lovers, and collectors. These Railbird Select bottles will be available for purchase for our VIP ticket buyers first, but don't worry, there will be some for all patrons to sample during the festival.
Come for the music, stay for the food with Railbird’s Sip & Savor, located in the air-conditioned Keene Barn. During Sip & Savor demonstrations, patrons will enjoy intimate, up-close-and-personal culinary experiences with world-renowned chefs in a studio kitchen setting. Samples of the chefs’ creations will be passed around to taste.
In addition to world-class dining, Sip & Savor will feature specialty craft cocktails and mixology demonstrations. (Must be 21+ to consume alcohol)
Culinary demonstrations are free and open to all ticket types.
The excitement isn’t restricted to the stage. Get in on the action and wager on off-track betting with coast-to-coast simulcast from Del Mar to Saratoga on the festival grounds. Take in the races from an air-conditioned bar and lounge inside Lucky Day Plaza.
