Monthlong Louisiana Bourbon Festival Debuts Return of Some in-Person Whiskey Events
October is here, and with it comes the Louisiana Bourbon Festival. Rather than a one-day affair, the festival takes place across the entire month of October and comprises five virtual and five in-person events. A month devoted to bourbon is extremely up our alley, so we’re all for this.
