Whether you are looking for meeting or convention space, a wedding venue, or outdoor event space, we at Oldham KY Tourism & Conventions are proud to offer a personal touch to having your event in our community. It’s difficult to plan the details when you are trying to put together an event in an unfamiliar place. That’s why we not only offer event space of all sizes, we offer a personal touch with our event planning assistance as well!

We love groups! Be sure to check out our Stay page if you are looking for special overnight stays for your event such as whole house rentals sleeping up to 14 with gorgeous outdoor spaces for off-site receptions. Our office will also help you plan the details with event-booked overnight stays in Oldham County – at no additional cost with events of 10 or more! Catering, cook-outs, florists, itinerary creation, entertainment, and meeting spaces are our specialty!

With some of the lowest hotel room taxes in the region and easy accessibility to all interstates, we’ve become a favorite hot spot for those wanting to “meet in the middle” or those taking advantage of the KY Bourbon Trail… starting at our own Kentucky Artisan Distillery.

Located just 20 minutes from downtown Louisville and 60 minutes from Cincinnati, OH, we are  conveniently located on I-71 – without the heavy traffic and congestion of the city. Stay with us, yet be close to your regional Kentucky favorites such as the Kentucky Derby Museum, Churchill Downs, Louisville Slugger Museum, Glassworks, Kentucky Center for the Arts, the Creation Museum & Ark Encounter, and the new Outlet Shoppes of the Bluegrass. Most regional attractions are less than 30 minutes from Oldham County!

So, whether you need a high-tech meeting facility for staff training, a venue for your tradeshow, or a picturesque wedding chapel and a convenient reception, we will help make it perfect.

Complimentary Planning Services are available!
Caterers, entertainers, group tour excursions, event locations, meeting equipment, transportation, restaurant meals, itinerary planning, photographers, and lodging are our specialty! Contact Kim Buckler in the Tourism Office for more personalized information and brochures.
