LaGrange Arts Fest & Trackside Market

LaGrange, Kentucky is rich with history.  Take one look at LaGrange’s Main Street district and you will find historical buildings, an actual Historical Museum and one of the few remaining railroad tracks in the country running through the heart of the city.

Main Street LaGrange offers a glimpse into the past while incorporating present day businesses, goods and entertainment. On Saturday, September 12, 2020, downtown LaGrange will transform itself once again into an Arts Fest and Trackside Market.

The LaGrange Arts Fest and Trackside Market will include over 30 artisans and vendors with handcrafted and hand-picked goods.  We can’t think of a better place than downtown LaGrange to showcase vintage treasures and new creations.  The market tents will be surrounded by beautiful, historical buildings on Main Street, Walnut Street and the courthouse square.

With tents spread out to help with social distancing, visitors can take their time strolling through the market.  Expect to see some of Oldham County’s favorite local artisans set up selling their goods and vintage finds. Porch Light Studio will have several brand new handmade goods along with Whimsy & Whatnots. The felt creations pair nicely with one of Porch Light Studio’s handbags, iPad cases or pencil pouches. 

An added bonus to the Saturday event is that the LaGrange Farmers’ Market will also be set up on the courthouse square. This Saturday market has lovely fresh farm vegetables, meat, flowers, baked goods, treats for your dogs, cheese and more.  The Farmers’ Market artisans will be set up along the Main Street side of the courthouse to go along with the special event. 

You’ll probably work up an appetite along the way, so be sure to stop in one of the local restaurants or other businesses for a coffee, treat, meal or glass of wine. Grab a yummy wrap from Red Pepper Deli, a slice of Kentucky Bacon Pie from One Nineteen West Main Street or something special at Main Street Bourbon & Ale House. Many of the businesses will be open for shopping as well. 

We hope you will visit LaGrange for this wonderful special event. The LaGrange Arts Fest & Trackside Market runs from 9am-5pm on Saturday, September 12, 2020.  Please support this event along with the talented artisans and professional pickers.  There will be plenty to see and shop.  Street music will be playing to add to the wonderful small town feel.  We can’t wait to see the hand-crafted, one of a kind creations and vintage goods.
