Update: Due to the current Covid-19 restrictions not changing it isn't possible to host Detroit Bourbon Fest on October 16th 2020 and the festival is being moved to Saturday, October 16th 2021. We moved the festival that far out to give the best chance of it happening.

All tickets purchased will be automatically transferred to the new date. All tickets will get 5 bonus drink tickets for keeping their tickets.

We appreciate your understanding with this difficult situation. When it is safe to host the festival we will and it will have been worth this dumpster fire that 2020 has been.
