We’d like to welcome you, safely, to Bardstown for the holidays. Whether you are a local or a guest, our postcard-worthy town will greet you with a brand-new experience: Light Up Bardstown – A Holiday Road Trip.

The Bardstown Tourism Commission, Bardstown Chamber of Commerce and Bardstown Main Street Program put their resources and a lot of devotion together to create this special Holiday Road Trip. Residents and businesses will light up for the holidays. Just follow the map of streets glowing with twinkling lights and holiday spirit! In addition, this team pulled together partners to give a special magical holiday wonderland experience on the first and second block of downtown Bardstown.

The Light Up Bardstown: A Holiday Road Trip begins Friday, November 27 and runs through the end of the year. Homes and businesses along the route will be lit from 6 pm – 10 pm each evening.
