BeerFest Presented by Liberty Financial



The Kentucky Derby Festival is postponing all events on the 2020 schedule until later in the year in response to concerns about COVID-19. For now, public health and safety needs to be our focus. We appreciate everything that is being done on a state and local level, and we want to support that effort. 

We are working to reschedule events. Please know, the Festival’s schedule may look a little different as we move things into this new timeframe. Our goal is to have Thunder Over Louisville, the miniMarathon, the Pegasus Parade, Fest-a-Ville and the Chow Wagon, and many other events in between.

We are contacting all those involved with the postponed events to alert them of the changes, including all ticket holders. The BeerFest Presented by Liberty Financial has been rescheduled for Friday September 11, 2020. We would be happy to issue a refund for your ticket at that time.
