St. Matthews is its own city within Louisville. It's well-known for its variety of shopping and restaurants, but at its heart it's a residential community. Tree-lined streets and elegant homes make this a desirable place to live. Two of the largest shopping malls in the entire state, the Oxmoor Mall and Mall St. Matthews, are located here.
The streets of St. Matthews will come alive on May 17, but after the festival is over the community will go back to being a peaceful, pretty part of the city. To learn more about this community, and really see it up close, visit the street party…and have fun!
