Celebrating Kentucky’s mountain beauty and heritage

The fifth annual Louisville Loves Mountains Festival is on Friday, May 17, 2013. The festival runs from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Longest Ave at Bardstown Road. Kentuckians For The Commonwealth is once again partnering with Heine Brother’s Coffee and Carmichael’s Bookstore to celebrate Kentucky’s mountain beauty and heritage. One thousand members of the local community are expected to attend the event. The festival is free and open to the public and will include local artists, musicians, food truck vendors, and breweries.

KFTC is also running a youth essay contest in conjunction with the festival. Louisville youth ages 5 to 18 are invited to write essays that address the topic “Why we need to protect our mountains and mountain communities.” The winning essays will be displayed during the festival. Contact Alicia for details about the contest (alicia@kftc.org, 502-589-3188)

Louisville Loves Mountains Festival celebrates the unique natural beauty and ecological importance of Kentucky’s Appalachian mountains. All participating vendors are donating a percentage of their sales to Kentuckians For The Commonwealth and the organization's work to end mountain top removal mining.
