We cannot thank the city of Lexington, our dedicated fans and partners, and everyone who’s come together to help build this amazing experience enough for their continued support.
We plan to keep the spirit of Railbird alive by moving forward with the release of our 2020 Railbird Select Single Barrel Bourbons. All 2020 ticket holders (21+) that choose to retain their ticket(s) for 2021 will have early access to purchase these exclusive bottles from our partners and collaborators at Justins’ House of Bourbon this fall. In addition, we're working on new ways to activate our original weekend in 2020 with preferred access in mind for 2021 rollover ticket holders. Stay tuned to the Railbird Festival channels as we have lots more to share in the coming days.
