Don’t Miss The Biggest Heritage Festival In Kentucky This Year, The Daniel Boone Festival
Kentucky is a state with a rich heritage and history, two major points of pride for Kentuckians. While there are numerous historical attractions and points around the state, there’s one town that truly celebrates Kentucky’s heritage each fall. Every October in Barbourville, the city commemorates the lore and legend of Kentucky’s most famous pioneer, Daniel Boone. The biggest heritage festival in Kentucky, the Daniel Boone Festival is an exuberant event full of Bluegrass heart and soul that you won’t want to miss.
Have you been to this heritage festival before? If so, we’d love to hear about your experience at this only-in-Kentucky fest! The 2021 Daniel Boone Festival happens Oct. 3-9 at various locations in downtown Barbourville.
