Forest Fest

Forest Fest began in 2005 to encourage guests to visit Jefferson Memorial Forest's scenic 6,600 acres while enjoying Kentucky Bluegrass music. Forest Fest includes traditional and progressive styles of bluegrass. Jefferson Memorial Forest has recently added music and band workshops as well for the festival. The goal of Forest Fest is to promote exploration and creativity within our natural areas.
