From an Award Winning Festival City

Louisville knows how to party (and host a festival)! In fact, the whole world knows.

In addition to hosting the longest running annual sporting event in America (the Kentucky Derby), Louisville became one of the first cities in the world to be recognized as a TOP festival and event city.

The International Festivals & Events Association named Louisville a "best festival city" for its variety of events and the way the community supports them.
