5 Things to do this Weekend in Louisville (9/16)

Sep 15, 2016 at 2:34 pm


Ten-Tucky Festival The Bard’s Town $14-$18  |  7:30 p.m. The Ten-Tucky Festival is all about supporting local theater with 10 plays, of various genres, each lasting only 10 minutes and all written by Kentucky playwrights. It’s a great way to explore/binge on all that the Kentucky theater scene has to offer, and it’s stunning to see what these playwrights can do with just 10 minutes of material.


UofL vs Florida State Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium Prices vary  |  Noon Sports aren’t for everyone, but if you are in any way a fan of college football, you should be pumped AF for this! No. 10-ranked Louisville is facing off against No. 2-ranked Florida State in the biggest football game in UofL’s history. If you can’t get tickets, it’s still worth heading to your favorite sports bar to watch this game with fellow Cardinal fans.

Louisville Pride Festival Bardstown Road Free  |  11 a.m. Join Louisville Pride for a festival on Bardstown Road (between Grinstead and Beechwood avenues) for a block-party filled with local food, drink, art and live music by Taylor Dayne, Mya and Rayvon Owen. Also, a portion of the proceeds go to benefit local youth programs. Outsized Influence Festival Bellarmine University Free  |  3 p.m. Outsized Influence is a festival dedicated to the Bellarmine University arts, featuring music and art all made by Bellarmine alumni, students and faculty members. As with any good festival, there will also be a small fleet of food trucks on hand, too. Bands include King Kong, Electric Garden, Zack Stefanski, Wilder Stallions, Big Momma Thorazine, Funkasaurus, The Lucky Bastard Club, Church Friends, Olga Maria Cruz and Kiana & Sarah. 

OktoberFest 2016 Great Flood Brewing Co. Free  |  Noon Don’t let the fact that it’s only September stop you from celebrating OktoberFest at Great Flood Brewery this weekend. Buy your own stein and fill it with your favorite Oktoberfest inspired brew all day long. There will also be a stein hoisting competition, oktoberfest trivia, and German-inspired food by Red Top Gourmet Hotdogs. Prost!
