Chosen as one of the Top Twenty Events for May 2013 by the Southeast Tourism Society and one of the Top Ten Festivals in Kentucky Maifestfor the Spring of 2013 by the Kentucky Travel Industry Association, Maifest is based on the German tradition of welcoming the first spring wines.

And be sure to visit the Kinderplatz, full of adventures and rides for the small children and the Amusement Midway filled with fun for the “older” kids.
