Dant Crossing celebrated the grand opening of The Legacy, a premier wedding, events, and conference venue in the heart of Kentucky’s bourbon country. 

Gov. Andy Beshear joined Dant Crossing leaders to unveil the new venue with a ribbon-cutting ceremony, followed by a celebratory event featuring live music, tours, and more. 

“We’re excited to open The Legacy to the public and create a destination for everything from close-knit events with family to industrywide conferences,” said Wally Dant, president and founder of Dant Crossing. “We’ve put a lot of effort into making Dant Crossing a go-to place for everyone, whether you’re a local or a visitor, and for families and individuals alike.” 

With three unique spaces, The Legacy can be transformed to accommodate up to 700 guests, lending an atmosphere of relaxed elegance to office cocktail hours, weddings, receptions, corporate events, and more. These spaces include: 

  • The Chapel, ideal for wedding ceremonies, which seats up to 350 guests and can be divided into smaller groups. 
  • The Banquet Hall reception and event space, which holds up to 700 guests and features a stage and specialty lighting, adjustable for a DJ or live entertainment. 
  • The Breezeway, which is a covered and enclosed enclave perfect for smaller events, cocktail hours, and more. 

The Legacy marks yet another addition to the growing Dant Crossing campus and is another step in solidifying this venue as a one-of-a-kind destination. This opening comes on the heels of several updates for the campus, including several high-profile additions to the Dant Crossing executive team. Meredith Moody has joined the team as chief experience officer, Anthony Summers will manage The Legacy, and world-renowned culinarian David Danielson is the new executive chef and food and beverage director for The Legacy and all of Dant Crossing’s amenities.
