Covington and Newport are the campus for Kentucky’s Edge, an immersive weekend of great bourbon, food, music, shopping and conversation including a conference, day tours, and more. Lucky for festival go-ers, it’s located in the middle of The B-Line, Northern Kentucky’s immersive bourbon tour.
Many of the stops on The B-Line are participating in Kentucky’s Edge by offering bourbon tastings, pairings, tours, and other experiences that we’ll outline below. But while you’re here having some amazing bourbon, shopping at the artisan market, and rocking out to the free concerts, don’t forget to keep your Line Guide in tow so you can collect B-Line stamps and redeem for swag!
The festival is set up so attendees may customize their experiences based on interest, budget, time, etc. So one person may choose to attend the free concerts and buy food and drink when they get there, and others may plan out every detail of the experience, benefiting from the special offerings of the festival that aren’t always available at each venue. To make plans for experiences, find more details and pricing on the Kentucky’s Edge website. Below is a run down of opportunities to participate in B-Line stops’ offerings during Kentucky’s Edge:

By our count, B-Line stops have enough events happening for you to almost make a complete B-Line during Kentucky’s Edge. But almost only counts in horse shoes and hand grenades, so pop into one more B-Line restaurant to round out your collection of two stamps from each category of bars, restaurants, and distilleries then submit your completed Line Guide for some sweet B-Line swag!
Fun options abound in and around the Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati region.
