BeerFest Presented by Liberty Financial


Over the past several weeks, the Kentucky Derby Festival has been planning and rescheduling our events for later in the year.  However, as we’ve closely monitored the developments surrounding COVID-19, it’s with an abundance of caution that we’ve determined many of our large-scale and in-person events cannot be held in 2020, including BeerFest.

We are contacting all those involved with the postponed events to alert them of the changes, including ticket holders for this event. If you are a ticket holder for this event, please check your email for more information about your options and next steps.



Returning to the 2020 Kentucky Derby Festival event schedule is BeerFest Presented by Liberty Financial. Come out to the Overlook inside Kroger’s Fest-A-Ville and enjoy samplings of both regional and national craft beers.

General Admission Tickets for the event are $50 each ahead of time and include tastings, a souvenir sampling glass and a BeerFest pin.

VIP experience tickets will be available for $85 each.  This exclusive ticket will gain entry to the event an hour before it opens to the public, dinner, VIP glass, a goodie bag and private port-o-lets.

BeerFest will be open from 6 PM to 9 PM. Tickets will be $60 at the door until event sells out.

Designated Driver tickets will also be available to purchase at the door for $10 each. Ticket includes access to the venue and a 2020 event pin.
