Each year, tens of thousands of fans fill Cardinal Stadium to attend the Kentucky State Fair’s 10-day concert series. It’s important to Fair organizers to provide quality, affordable entertainment options for families and other patrons. That is why each August, the Kentucky State Fair Board makes it a priority to offer a Free Concert Series with some of the best acts from around the country. Here’s this year’s line-up:
This summer, thousands of high school teachers and college professors will gather at the Kentucky International Convention Center to review and decide the fate of our nation’s high school students at the AP Reading. Educators travel to Louisville to score the College Board’s Advanced Placement English Language, English Literature and U.S. History exams.
Since 2007, the summer meeting has brought close to 4,000 educators yearly to the metro area for a three-week stay to grade student responses to the free-response questions on the AP Exams. The educators (also known as AP Readers) work from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for seven consecutive days reviewing more than a million exams.
In 1873 in Canton, Texas, the first American Flea Market was established and specialized in the buying and selling of homemade goods. Exactly 100 years later, a flea market was started in Louisville with the same premise, one that proves it will never go out of style.
In 1973, Mel and John Stewart began Stewart Promotions, a small company to run the Kentucky Flea Market. The Stewart’s did not then know that The Kentucky Flea Market would become one of the longest running outside ventures for the Exposition Center. Now in its 39th year, the Flea Market has held more than 400 shows, including the largest free Christmas and Décor show in the country.
