Crave Lexington: Food and Music Festival

Being able to attend a local food and music festival is a fun way to enjoy time with family and experience some new food vendors and restaurants in the community. In less than 2 weeks, Lexington Kentucky residents will have the opportunity to experience Crave Lexington: a FREE food + music makers’ festival celebrating all things from scratch!

Crave Lexington: Food and Music Festival

I have never attended a food and music festival like this, but am really excited to take the family and be a part of this event on September 21. The event is free but you will need to buy tickets to get the most out of the festival.

    Columbus has “Slice of Columbus” for all pizza in the area that we go to every year – actually it is usually in September so thanks for the reminder! Overall, we love food festivals as it’s a great way to try new food. Have fun!

    I have family living in Lexington and often have church events that are hosted in local hotels. I have never known about Crave Lexington. This looks awesome. What a great way to spend some weekend and family time. I’m definitely going to take my cousin to task the next time he calls! We could plan a family visit around this festival!
