Fair Day & Sorghum Stir-Off


Join the 100 year-old traditions of Pine Mountain Settlement School at Fair Day. New this year, we will be incorporating our Sorghum Stir-Off into the festivities. Visit exhibitions of local food and crafts, shop from local vendors, and listen to live bluegrass and gospel music. You can also take part in sorghum production, from harvest to stripping cane, to encouraging the mule to turn the press. Before your weekend is over, you will have eaten farm-fresh foods and tasted sorghum you helped make. What could be a better reason to spend your weekend in the mountains?

All weekend: food and craft vendors, activities, and camping! 

This event will help with the county's Trail Town certification. Once designated as a Kentucky Trail Town, Estill County will get on the map as an outdoor adventure destination in Kentucky. Come out and help them succeed!
