Kentucky Festivals and Events

Kentucky events

Kentucky is a state so enriched with interesting history and heritage, music and arts, sports and outdoors, there always seems to be a fun festival celebrating a Kentucky something or somebody.

The Kentucky Derby may be our best known event, but if you thought it was just a horse race— think again. The Kentucky Derby Festival, a multi-week celebration of the Kentucky Derby itself,  offers festivities ranging from steamboat and hot air balloon races to marathons, celebrity events and the Thunder Over Louisville fireworks display.

Other cool Kentucky festivals include Owensboro's International Bar-B-Q Festival, London's World Chicken Festival, and the oldest bluegrass music festival in the state: Lexington's The Festival of the Bluegrass.
