LOUISVILLE, Ky. (January 30, 2024) – Beginning this Thursday, February 1, fourteen attractions and five hotels in the Downtown area are participating in the re-launched Hometown Tourism Celebration, where Kentucky and Indiana residents are encouraged to visit well-loved or new-to-them attractions and support the growing number of destinations that Downtown Louisville has to offer.

The Downtown Hometown Tourism Celebration kicks off February 1, and runs through February 11. Individuals with a valid Kentucky or Indiana ID, local college ID, or military ID will receive half-off regular admission to various Downtown venues and attractions.

“We’re thrilled to re-introduce and grow a campaign that enjoyed success in the past,” said Rebecca Fleischaker, executive director of Louisville Downtown Partnership. “The week-long celebration not only encourages locals to be tourists in their own hometown, but it also supports and promotes the strength and density of Downtown’s attractions and hotels.”

Participating attractions and venues include Angel’s Envy Distillery, Buzzard’s Roost Whiskey Row Experience, Evan Williams Bourbon Experience, Frazier History Museum, Louisville Ballet, Muhammad Ali Center, SAR Genealogical Research Library, Slugger Museum & Factory, KMAC Museum, Derby City Gaming Downtown, Kentucky Performing Arts Center, Angle’s Selfie Museum, WOW Women-Owned Wallet, and the Waterfront Botanical Gardens.

In collaboration with Louisville Tourism, hotels also are participating with various discounts, offering a special static rate for the duration of the celebration. Hotels in the promotion include the AC Marriott, Hampton Inn Downtown, Hotel Genevieve, Omni Louisville, and the Myriad.

“We are lucky to live in one of Travel + Leisure’s ‘Top 50 Cities in the World to Visit in 2024,’” said Cleo Battle, President & CEO of Louisville Tourism. “Louisville’s Hometown Tourism Celebration gives us all an opportunity to visit a myriad of iconic and new attractions to rediscover the city that everyone is talking about.”

Admission tickets can be purchased online by individual location or multiple days and locations together. Walk-ins during the Downtown Hometown Tourist Celebration will be allowed but reserved tickets are encouraged. Tickets and hotel nights can be pre-purchased here.
