Old Fashioned Fortnight

Every year during the first two weeks of June, Old Fashioned Fortnight shines the spotlight on this spirited bourbon concoction. Old Fashioned Fortnight is an annual celebration from June 1 – 14, celebrating the Old Fashioned, kicking off on Kentucky’s birthday, and leading up to National Bourbon Day.

Join us in promoting Louisville’s official drink, the Old fashioned for a fortnight! The event will commence on June 1st, the kick-off through June 14th, on National Bourbon Day. As part of the celebration, we invite local bars, restaurants, and Downtown shops to show us their favorite “old-fashioned” recipes by posting photos, videos, and reviews of their favorite Bourbon district cocktails.
