Kentucky is a beautiful state that enjoys moderate temperatures. Kentuckians, for their part, love to party because of the mostly clear climate. And of course, they also get to participate in various festivals throughout the year.

If you were looking for the king of Kentucky festivals, one of the best candidates would have to be the highland Renaissance Festival in Eminence. The event runs for six whole weekends of fun and enjoyment. Another one, which I will talk about in greater detail below, is the MaiFest in MainStrasse Village in Covington; it celebrates the new harvest of wines in the German tradition.

The previous year, the MaiFest has been chosen as one of the top ten festivals in Kentucky for the spring by the Kentucky Tourism Council. It is the first major festival of summer in the Tri-State, and it welcomes the new spring wine accompanied by an assortment of arts and crafts. In terms of food, the festival prefers to dish out different international delicacies. Entertainment is also continuously available as traditional and contemporary performers show the guests a good time.

Personally, I prefer to stay in the craft shows in these festivals. While walking around long distances could be appealing to some, I find more enjoyment in seeing various crafts and experiencing the message that they bear. If you’re a stray soul like me, you will find many unique objects at the craft show.

Maifest is located over six blocks along the 6th street promenade. You’ll definitely feel a vibe that will remind you of a German Park. Look for a Goose Girl Fountain when you arrive, and then maneuver on from there. Music is performed daily at that fountain, and is considered by many to be the starting point of the adventure. Have fun at the MaiFest!
