- Date: Mar 24 - 26, 2017
- Location: New Orleans
The Sugar Mill and the Marriott-Convention Center in the Warehouse District are the sites for the inaugural New Orleans Bourbon Festival which takes place from March 24 to 26.
This 3-day event features an assortment of tastings and meals, including a pair of 1920s speakeasy-themed Grand Tastings. Those main events will be located at The Sugar Mill, where there will be live music from Matt Lemmler’s New Orleans Jazz Revival Band, as well as vendors in the adjacent courtyard and blocked off street.
Additionally, a Bourbon Seminar Series will transpire at the Marriott-Convention Center, just down the street from the main activities. Topics will include Women in Bourbon, Bourbon History, Master Distiller Talks and Food Pairings.
Festivities culminate in an Awards Brunch, where craft bourbon cocktails and local brunch fare will be on the menu as awards are handed out to the weekend’s best bourbons.
