ⓘ Burnside, Kentucky

Burnside is a home rule-class city in Pulaski County, Kentucky, in the United States. The population was 637 at the 2000 census. In 2004, Burnside became the only town in Pulaski County or any adjoining county to allow the sale of alcoholic beverages in qualified establishments. Since then, Burnside has annexed about eight miles of shoreline along Lake Cumberland in order to include Lees Ford Marina on Fishing Creek, allowing it to sell alcohol.

August 28, 2007, Burnside votes again approved the sale of alcoholic beverages in restaurants that seat at least 100 people and get at least 70% of their gross income from the sale of food, by a vote 227-104. The election petition was started by two Pulaski County clergymen in an attempt to reverse Burnsides "wet" state.

15 Oct 2013 in the city of Burnside voted to go fully "wet" by a count of 123-39.
