Bourbon & Beyond via Twitter

The second day of the Bourbon & Beyond festival at Champions Park in Louisville has been cancelled.

In a news release Sunday morning, festival organizers said the city declared the festival site unsafe after heavy rainfall on Saturday. City officials said "persistent rain made it impossible to adequately prepare the grounds to hold a second consecutive festival day."

Danny Hayes, CEO of festival producers Danny Wimmer Presents said it was disappointing to cancel.
“Our team worked so hard to bring an unprecedented festival experience to Louisville. While it is disappointing to have to cancel Day 2, we think the 25,000 fans who braved the weather got a real feeling for where this festival is headed. We are so grateful to everyone who worked so hard to keep the festival going on Saturday.”
Per the release, festival organizers say people who purchased tickets will receive refunds:

  • Sunday Single Day Ticket—100 percent refund of ticket price
  • Two-day Weekend Ticket — 50 percent refund of ticket price
  • Hotel + Ticket Packages — 50 percent refund of ticket price
  • Camping Passes — 50 percent refund of ticket price

The above refunds apply to all general admission, VIP, Beyond VIP and camping tickets at the originally purchased price level.
