The Kentuck Festival of the Arts has a 51-year history as a hub of creativity nationally recognised for its quality, diversity, and celebration of artistic style ranging from folk to contemporary arts and traditional crafts. Every year, over 15,000 people travel from across the country to become immersed in a Southern experience of prolific creativity under the shade of the pine trees in Kentuck Park in Northport, Alabama.
