We do our best to call around to the hotels periodically and update the website with availability.

A. If you’re looking to explore the Southern Kentucky region before or after the big event, the Bowling Green Area Convention & Visitors Bureau website (www.VisitBGKY.com) and the Kentucky Department of Travel & Tourism website (www.KentuckyTourism.com) are great resources to help with planning.
