The Festival celebrates many of Kentucky’s time honored traditions:  bluegrass music, antique tractors, crafts and pottery, instrument making, knife forge, free range food, taxidermy and game calls and much more. Hosts for the event are:  Tim Farmer of Tim Farmer’s Country Kitchen, Neal James of “Call of the Wildman” TV show, The Moron Brothers, Dean Osborne and Servant Heart Farm.

    In addition to the Kentucky Foxfire Festival, Servant Heart Farm is partnering with Asbury University’s Equine Program and the University of Kentucky’s Extension in hosting the 11th Annual U.S. Plowing Competition on September 5th. This is the first time this event has been held in Central Kentucky.  There will be teams of draft horses and mules from several states competing in seven classes. Breeds that will be there include: Belgians, Shires, Suffolk Punches, Percherons and Belgian Mules.

    The competition begins at 10:00AM, will continue throughout the day and is free to the public. It is being held on the grounds but outside the festival area. There will be educational booths and activities for the children. Food will be available inside the Foxfire Festival area or off-site in Wilmore. This is a great opportunity to see how plowing was done “the old-fashioned way” by some world-class teams of horses and mules. Parking is FREE.

    TRACTORIt’s August, it’s hot, and it’s time for the 11th annual High Bridge Homecoming Festival at the High Bridge Park, about 5 miles outside Wilmore!  Festival opens on Saturday morning and runs to Sunday evening.

    Many of the familiar and favorite activities will be back: Art in the Park for Children and free pony rides, free watermelon slices from IGA, many arts & crafts vendors, direct sales vendors, model train exhibit, and festival food vendors.ART

    Plenty of exhibits such as antique tractors, fire engines, and a police car, artists set up and painting on site.  How would you like to climb one of the huge trees in the park? Well there will be a professional tree climber there to help you with the rigging and send you one! Be sure to visit an authentic camp site occupied by “Daniel & Rebecca Boone.”

    Corn hole boards will be out for a friendly game or two.  And of course, lots of free music on both days!  New this year will be a “Rising Young Stars” event on Saturday evening featuring three local youths who are making a name for themselves in the music industry.

    Fund raising activities for the sponsoring High Bridge Community Association include a dessert auction, three silent auctions and two raffles:  a 47” LE Smart TV and a one-of-a-kind UK Championship queen size quilt designed and crafted by the High Bridge mother-daughter team of Flo Walker & Mildred Smith – exceptional!
