The 1800s are being recreated in the Highlands this fall at the Farmington Harvest Festival, and everyone is welcome to come and enjoy it. This fun festival is perfect for family members of all ages, and offers an interesting look back at Louisville history. There’s plenty of modern-day fun to be had at this fall festival, too.
Farmington Harvest Festival
The Farmington Harvest Festival is at the historic Farmington homestead in the Highlands, an interesting landmark in one of Louisville’s most interesting neighborhoods.
Characters will be in full period costume to tell you more about the history of this site, and show you what life was like on a working Kentucky hemp plantation. There will be traditional craft demonstrations and crafts available for purchase from modern-day local artisans. Old-fashioned games and activities for children will give them a look at what life was like all those years ago.
There will be live music, storytelling and even free tours of the beautiful house and grounds. Food vendors and craft beer will be available when you feel like doing a little snacking. Be at Farmington from noon to 5 pm on October 11, and be ready to have some good, old-fashioned fun. You’ll find Farmington in the heart of the Upper Highlands, at 3033 Bardstown Road. This shining example of the past is in one of Louisville’s most famously trendy, hip neighborhoods.
