Tickets for Live Events in Kentucky
Named the "Bluegrass State" for its vast expanse of fertile pastures, Kentucky is as synonymous with bourbon and horse racing as it is with college basketball. One of the four commonwealth states of the US, Kentucky is the birthplace of Kentucky Fried Chicken and bluegrass music. While every derby fan might head to Louisville for their fix of nail-biting finishes, there are also arts and culinary festivals to explore in the state, such as Bardstown's Kentucky Bourbon Festival.
Music aficionados can have their fill of jazz and bluegrass in Lexington, which hosts Festival of the Bluegrass every year. The event is staged at Kentucky Horse Park, which is 15 minutes from Rupp Arena - the home of men's basketball team, the Kentucky Wildcats. Fans of horse racing should follow the crowds to the largest city of Kentucky, Louisville, which hosts the annual Derby Festival. Make sure your Kentucky race tickets are booked well in advance, since they typically sell out really fast. Literature nerds can also get their fill in Louisville at the Kentucky Shakespeare Festival, while speed enthusiasts can head to Kentucky Speedway for Quaker State 400 - a NASCAR Cup race.
Be it the ballets at Southern Kentucky Performing Arts Center, the Beer Cheese Festival at downtown Winchester or the magic shows and orchestral concerts at Whitney Hall, there is something for everyone in Kentucky.
