It’s the festival time of the year in the Bluegrass! Lexington had Burger Week last month, and it’s now time for the CRAVE Food + Music Festival! An ongoing festival now held at the Bluegrass Fairgrounds at Masterson Station Park, this year features over 50 restaurants (including chefs and food trucks) and beers from craft beer sites as well as cocktails. In addition, there are musical acts to enjoy while eating, food performances like the Kentucky Hemp Foundation Cook-off and Brunch Mixology with Jack Rudy Cocktail Co., a kids area sponsored by the Lexington Public Library, and a car show. Kids can enter CRAVE for free and the cost for adults is $8.

The food lineup for this year’s festival includes local restaurants such as Crank & Boom, Bella Notte, Red State BBQ, Stella’s Kentucky Deli, and the Village Idiot, and larger chains such as Texas de Brazil and Edley’s Bar-B-Que, just added to the Summit at Fritz Farm. The options are endless.

This is one of Lexington’s most enjoyable summer festivals that’s great for couples and families. Make a trip out to Masterson Station Park and enjoy a fun summer festival!
