Kentucky Crafted: The Market, rated best fair and festival for the second year in a row by AmericanStyle magazine, showcases more than 200 exhibits by Kentuckian artists, cooks, musicians, writers, and more. Artisans representing every region of the state present textile and fiber crafts, ceramics, glass, and woodwork in the market's sprawling array of stalls, and Kentucky on Stage hosts live music, augmented by a battery of Bluegrass State gourmets, filmmakers, and authors who demonstrate their respective skills and ability to juggle burning versions of their respective wares for crowds. There's also a Children & Family Traditions area for a variety of hands-on activities, and the Kentucky Proud dining area, where a variety of regional edibles trade stories about surviving knife attacks and open flames.

Though Kentucky Crafted: The Market sometimes features discounted prices online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.

Kentucky Crafted: The Market

The Kentucky Arts Council, in conjunction with state of Kentucky, packs 30 years’ worth of experience and excitement into Kentucky Crafted: The Market, and it shows. The weekend festival collects more than 200 exhibitors from all walks of self-expression, be they artists, musicians, artisanal food products, or writers. They populate the expansive halls of the Lexington Convention Center with their handmade artwork, giving the public a chance to interact with them, order custom artworks, or just see and sample some goods. After navigating aisles full of artful sights, sounds, and smells, guests can relax and catch a concert at the Kentucky Stage music festival, a simultaneous event that collects beloved musicians from across the state. With all of this activity, its no wonder that the Southeast Tourism Society has named the festival one of the top 20 events in the region for each of the past 15 years.
