Labor Day Weekend events in Louisville


Labor Day Weekend events! School may have just started but local families love this three-day weekend that’s an unofficial goodbye to summer. 

Labor Day Weekend Louisville

The summer temperatures are still here, and so are the events. Find something fun outdoors to do with your family.

Labor Day Weekend events around Louisville will look a bit different for 2020. Major festival events are mostly cancelled. 

Don’t despair. The weather is looking excellent for the weekend. As we have shown you all summer long, Louisville families can find fun all around us. You might have to step out of your comfort zone and try new things, but there’s certainly plenty to do.

We have found that outdoor areas are amazing around our city. There are so many parks and creeks, lots tucked away where you didn’t know it was there. Trust us, your kids will love new adventures. 

Your family is still looking for fun. What is there to do?

Weekend Fun at Big Bone Lick State Park – There are tons of activities planned Labor Day weekend at this state park. Such a great combination of learning and outdoor fun. From scavenger hunts to leather stamping, they have a schedule of events for Friday, Saturday,  Sunday, and Monday. Some of the activities will cost a fee but everything is so reasonable. Support our state parks!


Catch the waves (not really but, I’m trying here…ok?!) at a local lake. We have some options here. Many of the beaches will close after Labor Day Weekend.

Catch a free outdoor movie in Clarksville!


WorldFest – This Labor Day weekend event will take place virtually for 2020. Monday, August 31- Friday, September 4, 2020. One of the region’s largest international festivals, celebrates its 18th anniversary with four days of expanded world food, live music, dance, culture and education.

Holiday World – This Indiana amusement park is open for Labor Day weekend.

Belle of Louisville had brunch cruises on the Mary T. Miller and they have a set of coronavirus protocols that they are following. Catch the breeze out on the Ohio and relax on the boat ride. 

Have a Kentucky Derby party at home with your family. We have fun ideas for a Kentucky Derby Party at home. We even had one this spring when there were no races and the kids loved the food! The mint mock juleps are really good and there are so many hot brown-like items you can make. 

It's fun to share:
