LEXINGTON, Ky. – Tickets are still available for The Main Event on Saturday, the highlight of the second annual Bourbon Social. The Main Event is scheduled for 7 p.m. at The Campbell House.

The Main Event will offer food and bourbon tastings, live music, signature cocktails, book signings, and giveaways. The Cocktail Competition and People’s Choice winners will be announced.


Partial proceeds from ticket sales to The Main Event and other Bourbon Social events will benefit Homegrown By Heroes, a Kentucky Proud brand that designates farm products produced by military veteran farmers. Agriculture Commissioner James Comer launched Homegrown By Heroes in January 2013, and the program was expanded nationally on Veterans Day 2013.


The Bourbon Social opened Thursday and continues through Sunday.


Other Bourbon Social events include a seminar series, brunches, dinners, receptions, and the Beer, Bourbon and Bacon Garden Party on Tuesday at Ashland, The Henry Clay Estate. Celebrity guest chef Edward Lee of Louisville and chefs Cole Arimes, Carrie Arps, Jeremy Ashby, Kate Horning, Alan Lamoureux, Jonathan Lundy, and Janey Thompson of Lexington and Mark Wombles of Midway will prepare Kentucky Proud dishes for certain events.


Tickets for The Main Event are $45. For more information about the 2015 Bourbon Social, or to buy tickets to The Main Event or other Bourbon Social events, go to
