OLD FORESTER'S PARISTOWN HALL
Bringing the arts to a whole new level. The street level.
Old Forester’s Paristown Hall will support local, regional and national artists in creating unique and immersive performance experiences for audiences and artists alike. Envisioned and operated by The Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts, Old Forester’s Paristown Hall is a destination for national touring bands, collaborative projects, new works and nontraditional performance experiences.
The Old Forester’s Paristown Hall name is designed to celebrate our hometown and this historic neighborhood bound by Broadway, Barrett Avenue, Vine and Brent Streets. Old Forester’s Paristown Hall will be a general admission venue for national touring bands, collaborative projects, new works and non-traditional arts experiences. The $12 million, 28,000 square foot building will accommodate up to 2,000 patrons for shows and events. The venue will also produce and host new community and neighborhood events, including festivals and family-friendly gatherings, as well as fundraisers, conventions, programs and performance opportunities for local favorites. Old Forester will serve as the venue’s title sponsor.
“Old Forester’s Paristown Hall now joins our esteemed campus of venues that include The Kentucky Center and The Brown Theatre,” said Kim Baker, president and CEO of The Kentucky Center. “This is the next step in fulfilling our facility strategy to attract world-class artists to Louisville, by meeting a niche need in the performance venue space – appealing to a fast-growing demographic, and cementing our position as a regional economic engine.”
