Y’all be sure to come and enjoy one of the state’s largest festivals. Since 1977, Pike County has been celebrating Hillbilly Days. This nationally known annual event is a fundraiser to benefit the Shriners’ Children’s Hospital in Lexington, Kentucky. Held in downtown Pikeville, this is one festival you’ve got to see to believe! Superior artists and craftspeople showcase their talents and sell their handiwork amidst mountain music, clogging, and square dancing. Men, women and youngsters pick and grin while trying to outdo each other with their wild hillbilly outfits. COME JOIN US!Carnival begins April 11th, with the festival scheduled for April 11, 12 and 13, 2019.
