The 42nd Annual Festival of the Horse
Downtown Georgetown, Kentucky
September 8-10, 2023
The Festival of the Horse is a lively tradition in downtown Georgetown. This popular 3-day event gives locals and visitors an opportunity to come together and commemorate horse heritage in the center of Horse Country!
That’s right, 2023 marks the 42nd Annual Festival of the Horse!
Headlining musicians, arts and crafts vendors, a craft beer garden and a variety of festival foods, family-fun activities, the largest parade in the county and more converge in Downtown Georgetown from September 8th through the 10th.
This year’s musician lineup plans to include more than a dozen local and regional artists. Countless vendor booths, ranging from handmade woodwork and crafts to jewelry, apparel and home décor line Main Street. The tantalizing scent of barbecue wafts through Downtown where tempting bites also include gourmet burgers and international foods, all washed down by a variety of local beers and craft brews. A Fireman’s Chili Cook-off, cornhole tournament and carnival rides add to the Festival atmosphere, along with family-fun events, including the Colt & Filly Review Parade & Grand Parade of Horses.
Join us on September 8-10, 2023 for an upbeat & family-friendly festivity that’ll have you coming back for the next 40 plus years!
