The City of Union is gearing up to celebrate the first “Bourbon in the Bluegrass” event at Farm Haven on Oct. 22.

Located on Tadpole Lane, the event will feature live bluegrass music from local bands, spirits and bourbon from local breweries, which will be available to purchase for those of legal age.

Farm Haven’s owner, Stuart Ferguson said he looks forward to a change during the peak of wedding season and plans on telling Union’s history during the event at the old barn house.

“If the event is successful, we are planning to have a bigger event next year,” said Ferguson.

Boone County Distilling and the Neely Family Distilling company, located in Gallatin County will be in attendance. Other spirit options include Redmans’ Farm and Winery and Braxton Brewing Company.

Big South Fork from the Northern Kentucky Bluegrass Association and the Licking Pike Ramblers will perform live bluegrass music, while visitors take hayrides, pet farm animals and get their face painted for $5.

Most food trucks at “Bourbon in the Bluegrass” are local to the tri-state area and more vendors are being added to the list. Expect to see Sweets & Meats BBQ, the Slice is Right, Holy Donuts, Texas Joe’s and Cones Are Yummy.

The city expects a large turnout and added additional parking spots at Ryle High School, along with the lots at Union Presbyterian Church on US 42 and Union Park on Old Union Road.

“We are getting a lot of reach and response through the marketing efforts we’ve done,” said City Administrator Amy Safran. “Residents are asking for more opportunities to come together and we hope it becomes an annual event.”
