Beattyville Bourbon and Moonshine Festival
A first of it’s kind festival, for the small quaint town of Beattyville located on the rim of the Red River Gorge and Natural Bridge State Resort Park area of Eastern Kentucky. A community which remained dry since prohibition until the vote changed everything in 2019. Since then, Beattyville has had two successful Bourbon and Moonshine Festivals which has proven to boost the local economy. This festival celebrates the heritage of multi-generational moonshiners through storytelling and also showcases area distilleries and their Kentucky crafted bourbon and moonshine products. A weekend of live music, festival food, bourbon and moonshine tastings, cocktail contests and an annual Hillbilly BikeFest. Guest include cast members from the Discovery Channels popular shows: Moonshiners & Master Distillers.
