    Founded in 2000, IdeaFestival is a celebration for the intellectually curious. It's an eclectic network of
    global thinkers and one-of-a-kind innovators bound together by an intense curiosity about what is
    impacting and shaping the future of the arts, business, technology, design, science,
    philosophy and education.

    The content of IdeaFestival is as diverse as the network itself.
    Presentations range from discussions about life before life to the existence of parallel
    universes; from global politics to the philosophy of randomness; from disruptive innovation to
    living to be 250 and beyond. In the words of one participant, 'At IdeaFestival,
    seemingly unrelated topics offer surprising relationships and insights.'

    The Festival is
    held every Fall in Louisville, Kentucky at The Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts,
    a beautiful and historic venue that houses artworks by such 20th century masters as Joan
    Mir, Jean Dubuffet, Louise Nevelson, John Chamberlain and Alexander Calder. The
    setting, thought-provoking sessions and informal tone make IdeaFestival a truly
    unique experience. Those who attend leave the event with interesting new ideas, a better
    sense of connectedness, an expanded network of relationships and lasting inspiration to help create
    change in the world.

    Founded in 2000, IdeaFestival is a celebration for the intellectually curious. It's an eclectic network of

    impacting and shaping the future of the arts, business, technology, design, science,

    Mir, Jean Dubuffet, Louise Nevelson, John Chamberlain and Alexander Calder. The

  • | 10:00am - 6:00pm | Shows, Festivals, and Fairs
    - The 2015 Art Show is September 30 thru October 2, 2016
    Hours: Friday & Saturday 10am -6pm, Sunday 10am – 5pm.

    The 2016 Art Show will be our 60th Anniversary!
    The 2016 Dates are September 30, October 1 & 2.

    The St. James Court Art Show® is a juried fine arts and fine crafts show that hosts an impressive 750 artists from North America. Held in the heart of historic Old Louisville among the country’s largest collection of Victorian homes, the St. James Court Art Show® has for over five decades provided our neighborhood, city and state with a rich cultural and artistic legacy.

    History

    St. James Court Art Show ® was founded on October 12, 1957 by St. James Court Association president, Malcolm Bird. Back in 1957, St James Court Association was faced with an empty treasury, mounting debt for recent fountain repairs, and an immediate need to generate funds. The Art Show seemed to be a perfect means to pay the bills and bring residents together.
    The Art Show started simply enough. “At first, it was to be an art exhibit only, although open to anyone wishing to enter an exhibit. The pictures were hung on a clothesline extending from tree to tree,” wrote Marguerite Gifford in her 1966 history, St. James Court in Retrospect.

    Following a 2015 sellout with 50,000 in attendance, LOUDER THAN LIFE returns to Champions Park near downtown Louisville October 1 & 2, 2016 for the third annual destination festival celebrating the region’s culture and cuisine, and featuring award-winning bourbons and spirits, Gourmet Man Food, craft beer and some of the biggest names in rock music. Slipknot and Avenged Sevenfold top a mindblowing music lineup of over 35 bands on three stages, with performances from Disturbed, Korn, Slayer, The Cult, Ghost, Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Cheap Trick and many more.

    Produced by Danny Wimmer Presents, America’s premier production company for rock music festivals, Louisville’s LOUDER THAN LIFE features a selection of award-winning bourbons, whiskey, spirits, craft beer, and Gourmet Man Food curated personally by festival creator Danny Wimmer, along with a powerful music lineup of rock legends and breaking talent. The festival celebrates the bourbon culture and culinary heritage of this unique American city. In 2015, Louisville was #2 on the USA Today list of Best Local Food Scenes and was featured in Time Magazine’s list of America’s Best Music Scenes.

    LOUDER THAN LIFE founder and producer Danny Wimmer of Danny Wimmer Presents declares, “Louisville: The home of bourbon. Great people. Great food. How can those ingredients not make a perfect place to have a festival? This is a place you have to visit if you’re a lover of bourbon, a lover of food…a lover of life. I asked my team how we could top last year’s LOUDER THAN LIFE sellout. The easy answer? Slipknot and Avenged Sevenfold."

    Based on over 50,000 attendees in 2015, it’s estimated that LOUDER THAN LIFE generated $13 million in economic impact to the city of Louisville, including more than $3 million in hotel revenue and more than 18,000 incremental room nights. Of those attendees, over two-thirds were from outside the Louisville area, and the majority said they came to the city specifically for the event. In addition, over 350 media were on hand to cover the second annual event, coming from around the U.S. and as far as away as the U.K., The Netherlands and Turkey.

    “We decided to start a festival in Louisville because it is such a special city,” says Danny Hayes, CEO of Danny Wimmer Presents. “It has a great Mayor, hospitable local government, welcoming CVB and outstanding city services that in turn make our job really easy. We have a long term plan to grow LOUDER THAN LIFE that includes a significant increase to the economic impact we have created in just the first two years of the festival.”

    “Louisville is a festival city – and LOUDER THAN LIFE, in just two years, has proven to be a huge success, both in terms of attendance and economic impact to the city. We look forward to many more years of hosting this impressive festival by the impressive Danny Wimmer Presents company,” says Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer.

    “We know from tourism research that attending a festival is one of the primary drivers for weekend visitation to Louisville,” says Karen Williams, President & CEO, Louisville Convention & Visitors Bureau. “Hosting LOUDER THAN LIFE drives lucrative leisure business to Louisville’s hotels, restaurants and attractions.”
