Kentucky State Fair

Drop by the South Wing at the Kentucky State Fairgrounds during the Kentucky State Fair Aug. 16-26.

Guests will be able to learn about various recreation programs at state parks during the fair. There will be special sessions offered each day of the fair by park naturalists and historians as well as golf lessons from PGA professionals from the parks.

The Kentucky State Fair is a great opportunity for people to learn about our parks and ask questions about the places they would like to visit. We'll also be handing out coupons for $62 a night lodge rooms as part of the celebration of the 50th anniversary of six park lodges – General Butler, Rough River, Lake Cumberland, Carter Caves, Kentucky Dam Village and Jenny Wiley. Guests can also put their names in for drawings for free overnight stays at parks.
