Popular event will feature Local Breweries, Goat Racing, Music and Inaugural Wurst Fest

WHAT: Bock Day Celebration presented by NuLu Neighborhood Association
WHEN: Saturday, March 24, 2018Noon to 7pm

COST: Free to attend
CONTACT: Randy Blevins | randy@thinktanklou.com | (502) 897-0649
DETAILS:
New to Bock Fest in 2018:
The first-ever Wurst Fest Louisville. Wurst Fest will feature local restaurants that will create their own version of a cased sausage. Each restaurant will be randomly paired with one of our bock beer breweries and will have to use that bock beer in the sausage.  Bock Fest Attendees will be able to purchase the sausages at the festival, and a panel of esteemed celebrity judges will taste them all to crown the Wurst Fest Champion!  

About Bock Fest :
Sponsors of the event include Bulleit Frontier Whiskey, Commonwealth Cure, Angel’s Envy, JEB Advertising, and Louisville Magazine.  Food will be provided by local vendors and area restaurants.  The 3rd Annual Nulu Bock Fest event continues an annual Spring ritual tracing back to the mid-19th Century to mark the changing of the season when the dark German lager, known as bock, was released across the city after a winter of aging. The holiday, which usually coincides with Lent, was hugely popular in Louisville during its first brewing boom but fell out of favor during Prohibition.
About Bock Beer:
Bock beer is a rich, complex, malty, low-hop style of lager. There are many varieties of bock that can all be different — Maibock, Dopplebock, and Eisbock.  Although it is now almost always a lager, bock was originally an ale that was brewed by German monks in the Fourteenth Century.  The monks would often drink the rich beer during their times of fasting.
About Goat Racing:
Safe and fun “goat races” will happen where goats are walked by owners and handlers on leashes down a sectioned off area of Clay Street. These races are sponsored by area businesses.

Goat races are traditionally associated with Bock Day, as “bock” means “goat” in German. The event will kick off with the ceremonial blessing of the goats at Noon, and the day will include seven races with separate divisions for kids (baby goats) and adults. The goats will race from Nanny Goat Strut Alley to Billy Goat Strut Alley on Clay Street.  Area businesses are encouraged to sponsor goats, and all goat welfare and race ethics are being overseen by the local chapter of the 4H, the Louisville Aggies. Businesses who are interested in sponsoring a goat may call Ina Miller at (502) 468-1516.
About the Breweries:

Bock Fest will welcome 13 breweries this year including
3rd Turn
Against the Grain
Akasha
Dry Ground Brewing
Ethereal Brewing
Falls City
Goodwood Brewing
Gordon Biersch
Gravely Brewing
Mile Wide
Monnik Brewing
Old Louisville Brewing
West Sixth
About the music:
The festival will also include music from local musicians. More info to come as musical acts are booked.
  
Proceeds benefit the Kentucky Guild of Brewers and Louisville Aggies.

March 1 - Curio Key Club at Mayor's Music and Art Series


About the Music Series:
The Music Series features performances on the first Thursday of the month. Guests are invited to bring a lunch and enjoy a special performance inside the Mayor's Gallery on the fourth floor of Metro Hall. Music starts at 12:10 p.m. with a brief interview between the band and Mayor Fischer. Attendees can enjoy free samples of pizza from Birracibo. Free admission


About Curio Key Club:
Curio Key Club is odd metered grooves, tight horn lines, fuzzed out bass, cinematic expression, swirling synths, improvisation, freak outs, story telling, ripping guitar, moments of funk and experiments of sound.
A little bit of the Boss, a little Clarence Clemons, the band has loose tendencies, technical proficiency and a rock and roll swagger. At home crafting experimental rock, pop, funk, instrumental jams, Curio Key Club reflects a myriad of influences.
Frontman, saxophonist and singer Drew Miller spent much of 2015 playing, touring and recording with  Bonnie Prince Billy and most of 2016-2017, touring with Houndmouth, making appearances at Lollapalooza, Shaky Knees, Telluride and venues all across the United States along with key club tenor saxophonist Graeme Gardiner.
A curio is an object of great interest and often, mystique. It is something foreign, maybe not yet understood, but not outside the realm of understanding.The symbol of a key speaks of knowledge, access, freedom, and liberation. A club, in its most basic form, is a group of like minded beings. Friends making music, music making friends.
Listen to the Curio Key Club music here

All shows are  taped and broadcast on the city’s MetroTV channel,  Spectrum channel 184, UVerse channel 99 and also online -- see the archive of shows below.
Special thanks to our production partner, The Kentucky Center.
