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, Fordsville Days makes the perfect midway stop along the 50-plus miles of sales on Highway 54.  This year the Quilt Show is back with more quilts than ever and we have a Checkers Tournament - so get your board and checkers out. Enjoy our fantastic food, games and family fun.
