Railbird is held at The Grounds at Keeneland, and this fest isn’t just about the music. So many classic Kentucky experiences are offered: The Rickhouse is all about the bourbon from Kentucky’s finest distilleries. Bottles are available to VIP ticket holders first, but there will be plenty of samples for all patrons of the festival.
The Sip & Savor is located in the air-conditioned Keene Barn where festival goers can enjoy personal experiences with world-renowned chefs. Samples from each chef are passed around to taste, and specialty cocktails and mixology demonstrations are also featured. The demonstrations are open to all ticket holders.
The Lucky Day Plaza is especially unique to this festival. Attendees can wager on off-track betting with a coast-to-coast simulcast from Del Mar to Saratoga. You can watch the races from the air-conditioned lounge inside the Plaza.
This diverse festival experience is all backed by an amazing line-up. Featuring artists such as My Morning Jacket, Leon Bridges, and the Dave Matthews Band, attendees can look forward to two days of amazing music, good food, and great drinks. This is one fest you don’t want to miss out on.
