The Festival

The Elizabethtown Heritage Council Presents:

"BBQ, Blues & Bikes"

On May 24, 2014, the streets of Downtown Elizabethtown will be buzzing with families and the smell of barbecue, the mellow sounds of blues, and the sight of thousands of motorcycles. The inaugural event of "BBB" will kick off with the goal of becoming an annual event that includes a sanctioned barbecue event.

The event will kick off at 12:00 p.m. and will continue until 10:00 p.m. During the day there will be multiple blues bands performing some of the best music in Kentuckiana. Many of the groups currently perform at Stevie Ray Vaughn’s in Louisville. The day will conclude with an act from Chicago that will bring back wonderful memories for many and will create a burning desire that is hard to extinguish until 2015. The barbeque will be ready to serve at lunch and will be available throughout the day. In addition, there will be other food vendors serving all your favorites.

The Downtown area streets will be closed to allow for a safe area for everyone. There will be a children’s play zone with lots of activities for families.

Our research verifies that we are the only bike show in Kentucky on May 24th. We are inviting clubs from all over multiple states and feel like we will exceed our estimates in lining the streets of Elizabethtown with current and vintage motorcycles. Additionally, expect a few surprises and fun events that will make this event Hardin Countians will not want to miss.

You have the opportunity to be a sponsor of this new, exciting event for 2014. We believe you will be happy with your investment in this community effort. Please contact us with any questions you may have and we look forward to hearing from you.
