Join Louisville in celebrating our famous son, the late, great Muhammad Ali, during the Second Annual “I Am Ali” Festival.
When our hometown champion passed away in June 2016, the Louisville community shone brightly to the world with collective pride, compassion, and humanity. Last year, Louisville came together again to recognize this significant anniversary and to honor “The Greatest’s" life and legacy with exciting events and activities for all ages.
The 2018 “I Am Ali” Festival will mark the second anniversary of Muhammad's passing and will include local arts and cultural groups, performances and events, films, entertainment, and other activities throughout the city that connect with and reinforce Muhammad Ali’s great legacy as a global citizen, athlete, and humanitarian.
Local attractions, hotels, and restaurants will offer programming, discounts, and special Ali-related events during the 10 day festival, focusing on Ali’s giving spirit, humanitarianism, and his love for Louisville.
