Our 30th Anniversary calls for a very special way to commemorate it. We're excited to announce that this year, we've commissioned Bardstown's own, Jim Cantrell, to create the artwork for our commemorative print & poster.
This 18x24 poster includes the 30th Anniversary artwork along with the names of each of the bourbon brands involved in this year's festival!
In 2017 he was selected as the first ever Kentucky artist commissioned by Churchill Downs to create the artworks for the 143rd Oaks and Derby posters. And now in 2021, he is the first studio artist to be selected to create the artwork for the Kentucky Bourbon Festival’s 30 year Anniversary print & poster! Thank you Jim for helping us commemorative such a momentous year in our history.
