Kentuck Festival Begins Tomorrow

Oct 20, 2017

Kentuck Art Center, Northport, Ala.

Thousands of people are expected to attend the 46th annual Kentuck Festival of the Arts this weekend.

The arts festival will feature close to three hundred booths with artists selling their work and demonstrating their crafts. There will also be a music stage and a spoken word tent. For the younger audience, there will be a kids' area which will include many hands-on art activities. Kids under 12 also get free admission to the festival.

Exa Skinner is the Program Manager at Kentuck Art Center. She appreciates the benefit of Kentuck not only to artists, but to people in the community.

“Whether it’s just as a festivalgoer or, you know, if their grandmother helped to get it together in its first few years, it’s touched so many people in this community that it makes you realize how important what you’re doing is.”

Tickets are available online or at the Kentuck Art Center in downtown Northport.
