Sample brews from more than 60 breweries both near and far including our own Blackstone Brewing Company and Yazoo Brewing Company, Louisville’s Against the Grain and Falls City Beer, Indiana’s Tin Man Brewing Company, nationally-known brands like Samuel Adams and many more.

See a vast variety of interactive works from sculptures to digital technology to billboard art and every unique medium in between. Plus, a lunchtime talk will be held each day with one of the artists appearing at the festival.

Vintage Base Ball

 If you’re looking for something a little different to do this weekend, Vintage Base Ball at Andrew Jackson’s Hermitage should do the trick. Watch as the Nashville Maroons, the Cincinnati Red Stockings, the Cincinnati Buckeyes and the Champion City Hill Toppers go bat-to-bat playing 19th century-style baseball, utilizing the uniforms, rules and equipment of the 1860s. The recently expanded field at the Hermitage now allows for two games to be played at once so you’ll always be entertained.

Where: Andrew Jackson’s Hermitage
