Join us on Satruday, April 27th at 6 p.m. for our annual fundraiser and enjoy Kentucky proud food, bourbon, and fun at a speakeasy-themed soiree! Now in its seventh year, Bourbon & Browns has grossed nearly a quarter of a million dollars to support ongoing preservation and education at Liberty Hall Historic Site. Tickets are $100 per person. To purchase your tickets, please click here  or click the "Bourbon & Browns Tickets" button at the top of the page.   


We are delighted to have Barbara Hulette (pictured right) serving as the honorary chair for this year's event. Barbara is a tireless volunteer known for her work in preserving many of Kentucky's treasures. We greatly appreciate the time and talents she has contributed to Liberty Hall Historic Site, and the energy that she has brought to Bourbon & Browns year after year with her signature style, inspiration, and sphere of influence.


The event will feature some of Kentucky's finest bourbon paired with delectable appetizers and Kentucky Proud foods. Guests will dance the night away under a garden tent to the sounds of The Swells.



Partygoers will have the opportunity to participate in our silent and live auctions and bid on many high quality, exclusive items including Boone Creek, a new work by Lexington-based painter Kelly Brewer!


This year's event coincides with Frankfort's Kentucky Distilled Experience, an annual weekend jam-packed with bourbon-themed fun! For information about everything happening during Kentucky Distilled, visit
