2023 Creelsboro Festival marks a new beginning
The Fourth Annual Creelsboro Festival was held on Saturday October 21, 2023, in historic Creelsboro, Kentucky. Click headline for photos from this year's Festival.
From Kimberly Lawless
The Creelsboro Festival had a wonderful new beginning this year, after taking a break in 2022. We are working on building a team to grow this festival into a cherished annual community event.
For the 2023 Creelsboro Festival, we added demonstrations of blacksmithing by Jonathan Eby, weaving by Anne Bird and beekeeping by Gunnar Coe. They gave the attendees an opportunity to engage and ask questions. Each shared their passion with the crowd.
The Blacksmith demonstration was a big hit for all. We had a steady crowd around Jonathan Eby as he hammered. He shared with us that he hopes to open classes for the public
Our Weaver, Anne Bird, expressed her heartfelt thanks to having the opportunity to teach her craft. In her presentation, she gave an open invitation to mothers to send their daughters to her. Her desire is so strong to teach the next generation.
Gunnar Coe, our local beekeeper, shared how he got started at 5 years old. I was so impressed by this young man. I was touched by his desire to follow his dreams.
Local vendors gathered together in our Trading Post area with beautiful merchandise, much of it handcrafted. Historian Richard Phelps portrayed Elijah Creel and gave a lively performance as he shared the history of the area. Living Waters drew the crowd as they performed. Everyone was excited about the raffle drawing for Showalter Meat's Whole Hog and Gift Certificates from Esto Country Store & Cafe.
We also wish to thank our sponsors again for their support this year!
