10 days that is...I'm planning on seeding a blend of 60%KBG mix and 40%creeping red fescue mix but was wondering if there was a KBG that germinated close to as fast as the red fescue.

Most grass seed will germinate within 10 days or so. AR in 4-5 days in the right environment. Straight KBG has still emerged after 2 weeks , but after 3 go ahead and overseed the light areas again..

Bronco Kentucky bluegrass has a reputation for fast germination. About 10 days. Dark green. Large seed so it comes up quick.

Crest Kentucky bluegrass is also a favorite with local hydroseeders. Germination in 9 days and first mowing in 36 days.

Try pregerminating your KBG then you won't need to seek out costly unproven cultivars.
