Louisville plays host to the most thrilling two minutes in sports, the Kentucky Derby, and is the producer of over a third of the world’s bourbon - the picturesque city lives fast and imbibes hard (spirits). An urban cityscape towers over the serene foliage and banks of the Ohio river, making for a bustling metropolis with a bit of that small town vibe. By land, air or sea, Louisville's year-round festival calendar has got you covered. Whether it’s the largest Beatles celebration in the world you’re looking for (Abbey Road on the River), a colorful hot-air balloon exhibition (Bluegrass Balloon Festival) or a thrilling riverboat chase (The Great Steamboat Race), Louisville provides world-class revelry in the Bluegrass State.
