Bourbon and Whiskey Festival Returns to Sunland Park Racetrack and Casino

Sunland Park Racetrack and Casino are again hosting the Southwest’s largest festival dedicated to the various blends and flavors of bourbon and whiskey this weekend.

“We encourage everyone to come out and sip and savor a wide variety of quality adult beverages,” says Ethan Linder, director of marketing for Sunland Park Racetrack & Casino. He added, “it’s also going to be a great evening to socialize with friends and to hear some really great bands.”

Over 50 distilled spirits including premium bourbons, whiskeys, and scotch will be available for tasting during the Bourbon & Whiskey festival at Sunland Park Racetrack & Casino.

This is the fourth year for the annual festival, which is free to the public and will feature several live music performances. The event is set for Saturday, February 16 from 5 to 10 p.m. inside the Turf Club & Franklin’s Lounge.

“We encourage everyone to come out and sip and savor a wide variety of quality adult beverages,” says Ethan Linder, director of marketing for Sunland Park Racetrack & Casino. He added, “it’s also going to be a great evening to socialize with friends and to hear some really great bands.”

Live music during the festival will include performances by the following artists:

• Brian Mars – Country, Southwestern Rock
• Dusty Low – Country, Folk, Indie
• Damian Wyldes – Original, Indie, Pop, Country
• Broken Dime Band – Classic Rock, Country, Cumbia, Disco, Top 40, Norteña

Whiskey is a distilled drink made from a grain, and bourbon, scotch, and rye are all considered varieties of whiskey. “It can get confusing,” says Linder. “Not to mention there are different types of whiskey, including Tennessee and Irish.” “And of course, there’s the spelling issue with those from Scotland and Canada, being called ‘whisky.’ They drop the ‘e’ from the spelling.” Linder jokingly added, “I guess the only way to clear up any confusion would be to come out to the festival and try them all.”

Unlike many other tasting events in the area, admission to Bourbon & Whiskey at The Park is free for adults age 21 and older.  The sampling entrance fee of $20 includes a souvenir rocks glass and 10 sample tickets. Purchases can be made at the door.

Parking is also free, however, guests are encouraged to please drink responsibly and to use taxi cabs or ride-sharing services such as Uber or Lyft, or to have a designated driver.

For more information, please visit the Sunland Park Racetrack & Casino website, or the Bourbon & Whiskey at The Park Facebook event page.

Sunland Park Racetrack & Casino is located off Interstate 10 near El Paso, at 1200 Futurity Drive in Sunland Park, New Mexico.
