Spring Festivals in Louisville
*Please note due to the 2020 COVID-19 Pandemic we are promoting stay at home and social distancing. You can see all our updated Spring, Easter, and social distancing posts here.
Spring Festivals are a great way to celebrate what wonderful people and places we have in the Louisville area.
Spring is here and soon, it’ll be festival time. Here is our annual list of great festival options around Kentuckiana. We’ve even thrown in some day trip festivals for super special events.
