Festivals, concerts and fairs can be a lot of fun. Each town/city has their own unique way of doing things, and some are quite unusual. In Kentucky, we celebrate a little bit of everything, and we celebrate it right. When you attend one of our festivals everyone is assured a good time they won’t soon forget.

Here are 13 unique festivals in Kentucky everyone should experience at least once:

If you know anything about Kentucky than you should have guessed Bourbon, the Derby, and The World Chicken Festival would be on the list. However, we have a wonderful variety of entertaining events scattered throughout the state each year. If you live in the Bluegrass state, or are just visiting, try to visit at least one of these celebrations. Rest assured, good times will be had by all.

If your town, or one you know of, has a unique festival yearly, please share. A lot of the smaller towns never get the recognition they deserve for entertaining celebrations so tell us in the comments below!
