LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) — Citing relentless rains, the city of Louisville has cancelled Sunday’s second day of the Bourbon & Beyond Festival.
WAVE reports here that officials declared Champions Park, site of the fest, to be unsafe after Saturday’s festivities.
“The cumulative effect of the persistent rain has made it impossible to adequately prepare the grounds to hold a second consecutive festival day. It’s always difficult to make a decision like this, but safety has to be first and foremost,” said Marty Storch, director of special events for the City Of Louisville.
Officials said the tickets will be refunded:
- Sunday single-day ticket — 100% refund
- Two-day weekend ticket — 50% refund
- Hotel + ticket packages — 50% refund
- Camping passes — 50% refund
The above refunds apply to all GA, VIP, Beyond VIP and camping tickets at the originally purchased price level.
For those who purchased via Front Gate Tickets via internet or phone, refunds will be processed automatically.
