The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) has designated Paducah the world’s seventh City of Crafts and Folk Art, making the city a member of the UNESCO Creative Cities Network.
Like a quilt composed of unique fabrics, Paducah is pieced together to create a work of art, a comforting community, a preservation of past trades, and application of innovative style.
A patchwork of history, museums and cultural attractions, Paducah is home to the National Quilt Museum, "Wall to Wall" floodwall murals by Robert Dafford, Lower Town Artists District working artists studios, the prestigious River Discovery Center, William Clark Market House Museum, and other heritage attractions.
Stroll down brick sidewalks around Market House Square and turn-of-the-century architecture. Enjoy theatre productions, boutiques, antiques and specialty shops and experience fine dining in an acclaimed one-of-a-kind restaurant.
Get away and rediscover the less hectic life of yesterday. Visit the historic western Kentucky rivertown where no one is a stranger.
