On February 19, Railbird announced the music lineup, chefs, bourbon selections, and more for 2020. More than 30 artists will perform across three stages during the two-day festival.

Along with world-class musical acts across three stages, Railbird will yet again offer a variety of premium culinary experiences highlighting renowned local chefs through its Sip & Savor program.

This year’s up-close-and-personal demonstrations and interactive discussions will be led by culinary headliners Cole Arimes, Jeremy Ashby, Samantha Fore (three of our Fridges of Fayette Co.), Ouita Michel, Travis Milton and Kristin M. Smith.

Everyone can agree Railbird wouldn’t be a Kentucky festival without Bourbon. The Rickhouse will be home to a highly curated Bourbon experience with hand-selected barrels from Kentucky’s finest distilleries and immersive whiskey experiences.
