Colossal cattle, trotting horses, handcrafted heirlooms, flashy games, novelty foods, and dizzying rides; these are the constants of the Kentucky State Fair. They are the sights, sounds, smells, and tastes that the visitors to the Fair encountered in 1902 and they are still a major part of the fair experience today, more than one hundred years later. But the other constant thread documented throughout the history of the Fair is change. Kentucky State Fair history encompasses Kentucky’s growth and change in communication, transportation, technology, and popular culture. Fair history reflects the challenges we have faced over the past century: to fight war and disease, to shift from rural toward increasingly more urban, to advance human rights and to grow more prosperous. The Fair has become the training ground, the testing site, and the public showcase for the Commonwealths progress.
For 170 years, generations of friends and family gather every August for the annual Picnic at St. Joseph Children’s Home to play games, visit, eat, drink, and volunteer. St. Joe’s Picnic has a long history of supporting children in our community and continues to be one of the largest fundraising events in Kentucky!
St. Joe’s Picnic For the Kids goes beyond the typical fundraiser by recruiting new foster parents, reuniting SJ alumni, and providing an inclusive and accessible space for the Louisville community. Every dollar given at St. Joe’s Picnic support children who have survived abuse and neglect as well as continue St. Joe’s mission of “Giving Children a Home.”
St. Joe’s Picnic For The Kids starts on Friday, August 9th at 5pm and will feature NEW! live music from Louisville’s very own, The Crashers. According to lead singer, Mark Maxwell, “The Crashers have waited 30 years for this opportunity. I used to dream as a kid for my band to play this picnic and we will not disappoint! Don’t miss out!” Food trucks, carnival rides, gambling booths, as well as St. Joe’s Cornhole Tournament will also be featured Friday night.
Picnic continues Saturday, August 10th starting at noon and will feature old favorites such as fried chicken dinners sponsored by Applebee’s, St. Patrick’s Cake Booth, Blackjack, and more! Musical act, Rear View Mirror, will perform at 9pm.
