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.

BEER CHEESE FESTIVAL- Winchester, Kentucky

beer-cheese-samplingIn 2014 the turnout for the Beer Cheese Festival was close to 12,000 people! Located in Winchester, Kentucky, the Beer Cheese Festival is a great place for local vendors to display and sell their arts and crafts. The best part about the festival is that you are able to sample beer cheese all day long. After you’ve decided on your favorite beer cheese, you can cast your vote!


Other than sampling cheese you can listen to live music, drink from the beer garden, and check out all the art and crafts booths. Some of the performing live music artists this year were Frontier, Kentucky Harvest Band, and BadTrain.
