    - 2016 LOUISVILLE BLUES, BREWS & BBQ FESTIVAL TICKETS

    Friday, July 22 | Saturday, July 23 | Sunday, July 24

    Note: Times are to be determined and are subject to change

    Ticket Information Coming Soon!


    THE MUSIC IS HOT. THE FOOD IS SMOKIN’. THE LOCATION IS HISTORIC.

    Only the Louisville Blues, Brews & BBQ Festival allows you to get lost in a soul-satisfying haze of New Orleans and Memphis-style blues and pit barbecue smoke. Add our special Brews Tasting Area where you can sample craft beers, and it’s easy to see why people mark their calendars for this legendary festival at Louisville Water Tower Park year after year.

    Whether you like your blues hard-driving or more mellow crooning, you'll hear more than your share of favorites as our live bands lay down lick after soulful lick. You can expect to hear covers of Blues legends such as B.B. King, Howlin’ Wolf, and Bob Dylan, as well as original tracks.

    The Louisville Blues, Brews & BBQ Festival offers a wide assortment of mouthwatering barbecue stands, where “sultans of the smokers” boast of a “secret ingredient” that all guarantee makes their barbecue the best. And don’t forget about the Brews tasting tent - back by popular demand – where you can cool off and sample the best of craft beers.

    BBQ

    Sink your teeth into some of the best pit smoked BBQ in the state of Kentucky. Juicy pulled pork. Tender slabs of ribs. Savory chicken. It’s all here, seasoned with a variety of dry rubs, sauces and seasonings that make your mouth water and the desire to go back for more!

    Brews & Cocktails

    Sample dozens of craft beers by microbreweries from across the state of Kentucky at our Brews Tasting Area. Or, for fans of something with a little more kick, try one of our featured Sailor Jerry Rum or Four Roses Bourbon cocktails. Both are perfect chasers for a round of Blues tunes.

    Fair Favorites

    No summer festival is complete without traditional fair favorites! Enjoy ice cold lemonade, funnel cakes, ice cream, ribbon fries and more at the Louisville Brews, Blues and BBQ Festival. Can’t decide which appeals the most? Treat yourself and try a few!

    - Dancing light reflects upon the placid river as barges drift alongside the bustling cityscape. The rolling hills and fields of Kentucky are captured in full bloom on a blissful spring day. The Bluegrass State is brimming with awe-inspiring beauty. While the typical passerby may not give the splendor of the region much thought, Lynn Dunbar captures and shares these moments through her colorful oil paintings.

    Kentucky Fine Art Gallery is pleased to announce the exhibition of new work by Lynn Dunbar in her upcoming solo exhibition, “Kentucky Sentiments.” You are invited to attend the opening reception July 7 from 6-8PM. The exhibition will be on view from June 6 - July 30.

    The artist’s style is influenced by Russian Impressionist, Nicolai Timkov, and American Landscape painter, William Wendt. Lynn Dunbar states “some of my favorite subjects are river scenes, plein air (on location), aerials of the local landscape, and nearby urban life. Besides participating in National Paint Outs, I have fun traveling around Kentucky and Indiana setting up my easel and painting plein air studies.”

    Lynn Dunbar has participated in, and won awards for oil paintings and plein air competitions on the local and national level. Awards include the Award of Honor from Indiana Heritage Arts 2015, Grand Prize Portland Heritage Arts Show 2014, honorable mention at the Salon International 2013, the 2012 Purchase Prize from the Owensboro Museum of Art, and the 2011 Grand Prize from the Louisville Women’s Club.

    - Dancing light reflects upon the placid river as barges drift alongside the bustling cityscape. The rolling hills and fields of Kentucky are captured in full bloom on a blissful spring day. The Bluegrass State is brimming with awe-inspiring beauty. While the typical passerby may not give the splendor of the region much thought, Lynn Dunbar captures and shares these moments through her colorful oil paintings.

    Kentucky Fine Art Gallery is pleased to announce the exhibition of new work by Lynn Dunbar in her upcoming solo exhibition, “Kentucky Sentiments.” You are invited to attend the opening reception July 7 from 6-8PM. The exhibition will be on view from June 6 - July 30.

    The artist’s style is influenced by Russian Impressionist, Nicolai Timkov, and American Landscape painter, William Wendt. Lynn Dunbar states “some of my favorite subjects are river scenes, plein air (on location), aerials of the local landscape, and nearby urban life. Besides participating in National Paint Outs, I have fun traveling around Kentucky and Indiana setting up my easel and painting plein air studies.”

    Lynn Dunbar has participated in, and won awards for oil paintings and plein air competitions on the local and national level. Awards include the Award of Honor from Indiana Heritage Arts 2015, Grand Prize Portland Heritage Arts Show 2014, honorable mention at the Salon International 2013, the 2012 Purchase Prize from the Owensboro Museum of Art, and the 2011 Grand Prize from the Louisville Women’s Club.
