Folk festival alert: It's Kentucky Music Weekend time

For the 36th consecutive year, this Friday and Saturday the Kentucky Music Weekend festival brings together some of the finest folk musicians and Kentucky traditions to the Iroquois Amphitheater and the tree-lined area nearby. Voted into law as Kentucky’s “Premier Folk Festival”, KMW continues to be one of the top folk festivals in the region.

Kentucky Music Weekend celebrates the rich musical traditions of our Commonwealth, keeping our folk heritage alive for future generations in the beautiful rolling hills of Iroquois Park.

No fee is charged for the festival, however, musicians are paid through donations made at the gate for the evening performances. Although there is a suggested donation of $10 for each evening concert, those who are unable to pay are still welcome.

What: Kentucky Music Weekend

Where: Amphitheater in Iroquois Park

When: Small stage events all day until 4:30PM Friday July 28 and Saturday July 30. Main stage concerts each night at 7:00PM in the Amphitheater
