Event Summary
The Butchertown Art Fair, Louisville, Kentucky
Held the first weekend in June and located in one of the oldest parts of Louisville, set against the backdrop of historic homes from the late 1800s, below a canopy of trees, sits the Butchertown Art Fair.
The Butchertown Art Fair has a unique style. Fun, casual, cool and entertaining, the event draws an eclectic crowd. There is something for everyone!  You'll find great art, locally acclaimed food vendors, and a variety of local spirits, beer and wine!  
We focus on accommodating the artist’s needs. Complimentary breakfast both days of the event and volunteers for booth sitting are only a couple of perks we offer.
