Hanging around for Labor Day weekend and wondering what to do?  Here are some ideas!

WorldFest – Admission to WorldFest is free!  It takes place Friday, Aug. 30, Saturday, Aug. 31, Sunday, Sept. 1 from 11 a.m.- 11 p.m. and Monday, Sept. 2, 11 a.m. – 6 p.m.  Performances, food, shopping and more!  Check out our review here.

Family – palooza – an event put on by Southeast Christian Church at multiple locations.  They have various campuses.  It starts at 11am on Monday 9/2 at all locations but the ending times differ. See details here – I suspect the largest event will be at the main campus on Blankenbaker. Here’s our review

If you are up for shopping, there’s always the big Flea market which offers free admission. It’s at the KY Expo Center –  Friday 12-6 , Saturday 10-6 , Sunday 11-6 , Monday 10-5   There’s a “wrestling legend” (that I have never heard of) that will be appearing all weekend.  You better set up a tent outside the night before to be the first one in and meet this dude 😉

Then there’s the KY Bluegrass & Bourbon Festival  which takes place at the Louisville Water Tower
Dates & Times are:
Saturday, August 31 – (5-11pm)
Sunday, September 1 – (5-11pm)
Monday, September 2 – (1-7pm)
It’s $8 before 6pm, $11 after 6pm but kids 10 & under are free – parking is also free.

Last, if you want to brave the heat heat heat that left for a while this summer but is back full force – head to
a golf course at one of the Louisville Metro Parks.  On Labor Day weekend, they have a special– a family of up to four members can play nine holes at any Metro Parks course for just $20. That includes greens and cart fees. Families can take advantage of the deal after 4:30 p.m. on three days: Saturday, August 31, Sunday, September 1 and Monday, September 2.  There’s also the Mayor’s Hike Bike and Paddle  for those that want to be active on Labor Day Monday – unlike me who will sit around and eat burgers while I watch the kids be active.

Have a great long weekend!

  • I just wanted to thank y'all for this blog. Although we are from Lexington, my husband is active duty Army and we've been outside of KY for several years. Now that we're at Knox, (land between the awesome) it's a great help to be able to check your blog on Thursdays or Fridays and see what's going on during the weekend. I've been sharing your blog with the Fort Knox Mommies Facebook page and Fort Knox Army Wives Facebook page, as well as my own. Thank you for your work and keep it up! It's making my job as Julie the Cruise Director a lot easier! 🙂
