Things to do in Kentucky THIS NOVEMBER

There are always the horse sales!

Starting with the "Star studded" boutique night at Fasig-Tipton on Monday 6th November and continuing with the Keeneland November Sale from Tuesday 7th through Saturday 18th November

Here is our guide to some of the other things you can do in Kentucky during sales season as suggested by the team at Kentucky Tourism

Lockbox Restaurant, Lexington

After the sales, head downtown to what we think is the best upcoming restaurant in Lexington. Led by executive chef Jonathan Searle, the menus at Lockbox showcase a deep network of local providers and the bounty of ingredients fed by Kentucky’s limestone-rich soil. The menus change frequently, depending on what's in season


Visit Chilhuly Art Exhibit at Maker’s Mark Distillery

See the art of bourbon making and the world-renowned glass art of Dale Chihuly at a limited-run special exhibition at Maker’s Mark Distillery in Loretto through December 3rd. This exhibit features seven dramatic large-scale installations against the backdrop of the architecture and grounds of this National Historic Landmark. “Chihuly at Maker’s” offers both daytime and nighttime tours.

The Summit at Fritz Farm, Lexington

The Summit at Fritz Farm is central Kentucky’s newest upscale shopping and dining experience, which includes over 70 street-level shops with more than 30 dining options featuring chef-inspired, local and regional flavors. Also on the grounds is “The Barn” an artisan food hall with all local, independent restauranteurs, craft ice cream, pasture-raised fried chicken, Greek street food, Japanese ramen, and more.

Flame Run, Louisville

After being inspired by the art at Maker’s Mark, visit Flame Run in Louisville which offers guided and self-guided tours, hands-on “walk-in” classes and workshops, a gorgeous gallery of flame-worked glass art and a chance to watch master craftsmen in action. Watch glass blowing from a balcony overlooking the studio, take a tour or sign up to create a masterpiece of your own during Walk-In Workshops.


The Beaumont Inn, Harrodsburg

Consistently ranked as one of the best inns and restaurants in the South, the Beaumont Inn main dining room features classic Kentucky cuisine and southern hospitality inside a grand historic 1845 building.
