Covington and Newport are the campus for Kentucky’s Edge, an immersive weekend of great bourbon, food, music, shopping and conversation including a conference, day tours, and more. Lucky for festival go-ers, it’s located in the middle of The B-Line, Northern Kentucky’s immersive bourbon tour.
Many of the stops on The B-Line are participating in Kentucky’s Edge by offering bourbon tastings, pairings, tours, and other experiences that we’ll outline below. But while you’re here having some amazing bourbon, shopping at the artisan market, and rocking out to the free concerts, don’t forget to keep your Line Guide in tow so you can collect B-Line stamps and redeem for swag!
The festival is set up so attendees may customize their experiences based on interest, budget, time, etc. So one person may choose to attend the free concerts and buy food and drink when they get there, and others may plan out every detail of the experience, benefiting from the special offerings of the festival that aren’t always available at each venue. To make plans for experiences. Below is a run down of opportunities to participate in B-Line stops’ offerings during Kentucky’s Edge:
