The Heart of Fun in Eastern Kentucky

46th annual Morgan County Sorghum Festival



It’s almost time for the 46th annual Sorghum Festival. Always the last full weekend of September, this year’s dates are Sept. 23rd, 24th and 25th. This year you’ll see local artists including painters, photographers, folk artists and writers and lots of traditional crafts, including baskets, quilts, wood-working and home accessories. You’ll also be able to view old-fashioned sorghum making, including the mule-driven mill, demonstrated by Danny Townsend and sample delicious sorghum fresh from the vat. Our food booths are run by local civic organizations and offer lots of regional favorites. If you’ve never had an old-fashioned ham biscuit or soup beans and cornbread, you’re in for a tasty treat! If you’re not from Morgan County, you might notice men, women and children alike walking around in bib overalls. This is a tradition unique to the Morgan County Sorghum Festival, where old-fashioned ways are celebrated! Visit the Morgan County Sorghum Festival website for more information.
