The 33rd Annual Taste of the Bluegrass was a complete SUCCESS!

May 17th, 2013, the 33rd Annual Taste of the Bluegrass was held in Keeneland’s Keene Barn & Entertainment Center, featuring a “who’s who” of restaurants, caterers, bakeries, beverage purveyors, and guests. We've set more records in table sales, ticket sales and overall attendees and the crowd of supporters left after a great night of sampling the best food, drink and music that Central Kentucky has to offer!

Stay tuned to our Facebook page for photo albums from the night!  We have an Awards Album, and Taste Album #1 and Taste Album #2.  Click on the links to view the photos!  Don't forget to tag yourself and your friends.
