Harvest & Heritage
September 24 (5:00-10 p.m.)
Known as the “City of Firsts,” Danville has become a cultural hub in Central KY with incredible musical talent, libations and food. And this is what the Harvest & Heritage Festival seeks to celebrate. The new event, Harvest & Heritage Festival, will take place on Saturday, September 24th from 5:30-10p.m. on Main St., between 3rd and 4th. The new Harvest & Heritage Festival speaks to the Danville community and what the city has to offer.
“We wanted to change things up this year and celebrate our community,” said Heart of Danville Director, Bethany Rogers. “In years past we have celebrated the fall with our Oktoberfest, but that does not get to the heart of who we are.” Patrons will still be able to get full-size beers and enjoy great music.
This year’s drink selection will include craft beers from two hometown boys, Sean Stevens (White Squirrel Brewery, Bowling Green) and Brian Holton (Beer Engine, Danville & Monnik Beer Co., Louisville), and throughout Kentucky.
The musical talent for this year’s festivities include Where’s Cassie?, the DJ styles of Michael Fly and The Rooster’s Crow.
Where’s Cassie? - Where's Cassie? is an Americana and bluegrass band featuring banjo, guitar, fiddle and vocals comprised of former members of the Centre College’s Kentucky Music Ensemble. The band has toured throughout the northeastern United States and central Kentucky.
The Rooster’s Crow - The Rooster’s Crow have taken Kentucky by storm. Rooted in traditional Appalachian folk music, The Rooster's Crow brings a new sound to the singer-songwriter scene. Inspired by the old-time ballads heard in Eastern Kentucky, the gritty, dirty, and meticulously crafted lyrics paint a vivid portrait of both the beauty and darker side of mountain life.
Local cuisine from Captain Frank’s Hotdog Emporium, The Hub Coffeehouse and Café, Marksbury Farm, Brother’s BBQ and more will be served up. Water and soft drinks will also be available.
There will be activities for children, including an art activity and face painting, so all ages are welcome.
Musical entertainment is sponsored by Ephraim McDowell Health Care Foundation. All proceeds benefit downtown revitalization.
