Bardstown Bound, LouisvilleWHY Louisville has been on board since 2005!
Bardstown Bound and BooFest are great ways of celebrating the change of the seasons, encouraging neighbors to get out and enjoy the “walkability” of our eclectic neighborhood and its unique boutiques and eateries.

WHY Louisville


I am one of the biggest fans of Boo Fest and Bardstown Bound.  As a former business owner, I was honored to participate in these events. These events bring so much life and energy into the Highlands.

boomerTwo of my favorite local events that I look forward to every May and October are Bardstown Bound and the Boofest. They are “feel good” events for both the young and young at heart. Kudos to the organizers and to the people who get the word out. Simply PR is simply the Best!

boo2013#2Being a Highland resident for many years, Bardstown Bound and Bardstown BooFest are two of my favorite events promoting and highlighting the neighborhood! I usually host a party celebrating these events, then we all hit the streets and enjoy the many bars and boutiques on board the Bound events-plus we alwasy look forward to being in costume for the BooFest! Keep up the Good Work!

ScottSchlaflyBeer“Our Eastern Area Manager, Scott Shreffler, is a Louisville native. So, when attempting to grow Schlafly Beer in the city of Louisville, we took a more localized approach to our marketing. Whether its sponsoring the Butchertown Arts Fair, the Frankfort Avenue Trolley Hop or this month’s Bardstown Bound BooFest, being a part of these events has helped build a trust and appreciation for Schlafly Beer in the great city of Louisville”.



sarahavensSara Havens (aka The Bar Belle): What can I say about Bardstown Bound that hasn’t already been said? I laugh, I cry, I feel good about myself after a few stops at my neighborhood bars. Highlands people are happy people … just start waving and watch how many people wave back. Cheers!
