Kentuck chosen as one of Time magazine’s “50 Authentic American Experiences”

The Kentuck Festival of the Arts in Northport was chosen by Time magazine as one of the “50 Authentic American Experiences 2009.” The editors looked for places, things, and activities that speak to the real America for the state-by-state list. The Kentuck festival takes place Oct. 17-18 in Northport. www.kentuck.org
 
From the article by Reed Tucker in Time magazine:
“Not just anyone gets invited to the Kentuck Festival of the Arts. Artists have to be chosen by a jury to display their wares there, and the pickiness appears to pay off. You’ll see some of the South’s finest quilters, woodworkers, painters, sculptors and other folk artists. Kentuck continues to grow in popularity after nearly 40 years, with tens of thousands of visitors descending on the October festival to eat, buy art and listen to blues, bluegrass, country and gospel music.” http://www.time.com/time/specials/packages/article/0,28804,1909343_1909285,00.html
