Region Western Kentucky

Located among the rolling hills of Western Kentucky, Greenville extends true southern hospitality with flair to all who visit.  Whether you attend one of our special events, visit local eateries, or browse for specialty items in some of our unique shops your visit to Greenville will not be disappointing. 

As the county seat for Muhlenberg County, the historic square is anchored with a beautiful 100+ year old court house that plays hostess to Kentucky’s second largest clock/bell tower dome.  The beautiful downtown area has just recently been refurbished. The renovation process, which is still on-going, has once again made downtown a center for vitality and growth. There are a wide variety of shops to choose from as well as a café/music store/coffee house combination right in downtown.

If festivals and events are what you’re in to, Greenville is the right town. We offer a variety of events throughout the year including “Skyfest at the Airport”, “Saturdays on the Square”, “Twi-Light Drive-in Antique Car Show”, “Squash & Gobble Arts Bazaar & Fall Festival”,  an annual Christmas Parade and various downtown merchant open houses.  The tourism commission is working on adding new events to our repertoire including bringing back the local Strawberry Festival and adding a sanctioned barbeque competition! Be sure to come and visit Greenville because when you arrive, you’re just in time!
