HAPPY THANKSGIVING KENTUCKY!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING KENTUCKY!

PREMIERING 12/1 @ 1:30pm on KETKY. For our 13th episode, “Festivals and Fundraising,” we visited three unique Kentucky festivals: Winchester’s Beer Cheese Festival, Lexington’s Woodland Arts Fair, and Fort Harrod’s Beef Festival. Our camera crew also visited the Moontower Music Festival, the backdrop for this exciting new episode.

The 10th annual Fort Harrods Beef Festival was hosted this year at the Mercer County Fairgrounds in Harrodsburg, Kentucky. The festival showcases Kentucky’s beef industry, which is the largest east of the Mississippi and eighth largest overall.
As with the Beef Festival, Winchester’s Beer Cheese Festival is a great place for local vendors to display and sell their arts and crafts. Unsurprisingly, our favorite part about the festival was that we got to sample beer cheese all day long—and then vote on our favorite one!
Episode 13 concludes with a visit to an event that hosts 200 artists, live music, and food and fun for the whole family: the 40th annual Woodland Arts Fair. Event sponsor the Lexington Art League envisions a world where art, artists, and art-making are central to human inspiration, self-realization, and meaning—and this vision certainly shone through during our enjoyable visit there.
