FULL SITE COMING SOON! REGISTRATION OPENS SEPT. 12, 2016!
This is the place to talk about death . . . frankly, intelligently, with humor, compassion, and intent.

 

The Before I Die Festival has partnered with local businesses and organizations to host a month-long program exploring the many different ways we can face death and dying. In addition to being an inaugural festival for Louisville, KY, this is the first Before I Die event of this size to be held in the United States!

All ages are encouraged to participate in this series of community events that will feature art installations, discussions with religious leaders, educational programs, music, comedy, games, author talks, a cemetery tour, and more. Numerous opportunities to explore individual attitudes, values, and feelings will foster the personal connections that lie at the heart of contemplating end of life.
