Learn More about Kentucky All Through August

The KentuckyShow! is playing all August long at the Kentucky Center, and even lifelong residents will learn something new about the state at this event. The show will play on the hour every Tuesday through Saturday from 10 am to 4 pm, and on Sundays from 1 pm to 4 pm.

Living in Kentucky

The KentuckyShow! is completely unique. It’s a large-screen production featuring music and images. Movie star and Kentucky native Ashley Judd narrates the story. The show takes a close look at the one-of-a-kind culture, music, history and spirit of Kentucky.

Children 5 and under attend the show for free. Seniors and children under the age of 18 cost just $5. For adults, the price is $7 per ticket. The show itself lasts just 32 minutes, so even young kids won’t get too antsy during the presentation.

The Kentucky Center is located at 501 West Main Street, in the heart of one of downtown Louisville’s most historic neighborhoods.

In Downtown Louisville

The Kentucky Center is nestled on the banks of the Ohio River, near Waterfront Park and the Great Lawn. It’s in the West Main District of downtown Louisville, an area that’s listed on the National Register of Historic Places. This part of the city has the largest group of buildings with cast iron facades anywhere in the country outside New York’s famed SoHo neighborhood. This part of Main is also where you’ll find the famous “Museum Row,” a center of culture for the city.

A few miles east of West Main, you’ll find the Phoenix Hill neighborhood. This area was settled prior to the 1850s, which makes it even older than the Civil War. Phoenix Hill has something for everyone, including its own arts and entertainment district. Many family-owned businesses are in the commercial district, mixed right in with larger corporate interests and industries.

Phoenix Hill has its own Neighborhood Association. Go to the historic part of the community to find the Farmer’s Market, where anyone can purchase fresh vegetables. The area is famous for its shotgun houses and newer, large residential housing complexes.

Learn more about Phoenix Hill, and the rest of the state, at the Kentucky Center this August. This one-of-a-kind show is a must-see for all residents of Kentucky.
