Thanks to everyone who helped make the 24nd Annual Fordsville Days a success! We are already making plans
for our 25th year to be held September 18-20 2014. Plans are in the works to add new events, find new vendors
and bring in new attractions to make this Fordsville Days a fabulous three day celebration for the community
and all who plan to attend.
Since 1990 the Fordsville Historical Society & Museum Inc. has played host to one of Ohio Counties largest
events. Fordsville Days has grown into more than just a fundraiser for L & N Deport Museum, it has become a
community tradition! Featuring carnival rides, beauty pageants, free musical entertainment, craft and vendor
booths, car and tractor shows, fantastic food, games and family fun. Fordsville Days serves as a homecoming
with the fun of a county fair. Paired with the addition of the Highway 54 yard sale that stretches from
Owensboro, KY to Leitchfield, KY Fordsville Days makes the perfect midway stop along the 50-plus miles of sales
on Highway 54.
All profits go to the Fordsville Historical Society and Museum Inc. which operates the Fordsville Depot
Museum located at 32 Ridge Road, Fordsville, KY. Monies raised through booth rentals, food, t-shirt sales
and business sponsorships assist the Society with upkeep of the museum and allows for the non-profit to
support other events in our community such as the annual Christmas celebration, Summer Saturday Events
and many more civic-minded events.
