Summer Concerts in Downtown Bardstown
Located right in the heart of Bluegrass Kentucky, Bardstown is a fascinating place to spend a few days. The town itself was settled in 1780, and continues to this day to be a modern remnant of Kentucky’s storied past. There’s plenty to see and to explore while you’re here, but we think it’s equally important that you plan in some downtime. Given that we are in the Bluegrass region of Kentucky, one of the best ways to sit back and get a true feel for Bardstown is to join us at our summer concerts.
Every Friday night, summer band concerts will be held at Bardstown Community Park from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. The concerts are free, and promise a diverse range in entertainment. Bands will feature a wide variety of music, including military bands playing Sousa, folk groups, and big-band swing. On Saturday July 8, there’s the Bourbon Street City Concert, held on the first block of North Third Street. 2017’s Live in the Park summer concerts won’t disappoint, either. The 5-concert series will be held at the J. Dan Talbott Amphitheatre at My Old Kentucky Home State Park, and will feature and incredible range of music throughout the season.
Come visit us in Bardstown this summer, and see for yourself why this charming small town in Kentucky remains a popular travel destination. Book your room at our elegant Bed and Breakfast, the Bourbon Manor, today.
