About The Kentucky Edge

Born from a desire to shine a light on our region and heritage, the Kentucky’s Edge Bourbon Conference & Festival is designed to share on a local, national, and international scale what makes Northern Kentucky special.

Organizers are thinking of the Kentucky’s Edge Bourbon Conference & Festival as the SXSW for bourbon, with Covington and Newport as the campus. The weekend will include a free music festival on the river, a Kentucky artisan market in MainStrasse Village, and a bourbon conference at the Northern Kentucky Convention Center. There will also be bourbon pairings, tastings, and musical performances at restaurants and bars spread out across the two cities.
