Funtober Fall Festivals

Fall Kentucky Festivals

I’m a bit surprised there aren’t more fall festivals in Kentucky in 2014.  There are some unusual September and October festivals on this list.  There’s the standard complement of fall and harvest festivals.  But I didn’t discover any festivals worthy of Kentucky.  Except perhaps the Country Ham Festival, which is brilliantly named.  You really need to tie one on during Oktoberfest in Kentucky and plan an absurdly fun festival.
