Each fall, the community of Forkland, Kentucky, celebrates its rural heritage with the annual Heritage Festival and Revue. For two days, festival-goers can take part in a wide range of activities, designed to commemorate days gone by with crafts, food, music and much, much more. In addition to the highlight of the festival, the famous Country Supper Theatre — where folks can enjoy a bean and cornbread supper each evening as well as a show — there also are old-fashioned games for the children, hayrides and historical displays. You can even meet descendants of Abraham Lincoln’s grandmother!

This year’s festival will be held October 11 and 12. For more information about the event and tickets, check out Forkland Community Center.
