Kentucky Week

Kentucky Week 2014


Kentucky Week is a short series of events created to celebrate several aspects of Kentucky. Arts, agriculture, artisanship, athletics and music from the state are exhibited for those who call the Commonwealth home, either permanently or temporarily. This week seeks to delve beneath the traditional representations of the state to reveal the rich culture tucked away in both hills and cities across the bluegrass. Want to see what the Commonwealth has to offer? Check out Kentucky Week for the best in our state’s arts, agriculture and athletics!
