“The festival is designed to showcase Kentucky’s beef industry. Kentucky is the largest beef cattle producing state east of the Mississippi, and ranks 8th in US production. We are in the business of promoting and educating the public about the production, distribution, and selling of beef from the farm to the marketplace.”
The 10th annual Fort Harrods Beef Festival was hosted this year at the Mercer County Fairgrounds in Harrodsburg, Kentucky. This festival is great for all ages with activities such as inflatables for the kids, a youth competition grill off, live music, local vendors, and antique cars!
There’s also a progressive dinner with beef cuisine from local caterers and a Spirit and Bourbon tasting! Who doesn’t love some Kentucky Bourbon? With paint balling, arts & crafts, wine & cheese tasting, 5k run/walk, pageants, and carnival corral this festival is surely one to remember!
kNOwMORE nonprofits went out to this festival to film and learn about Harrodsburg and how this festival supports the local community. Be sure to check out our kNOwMORE nonprofit segment about this festival!
