Morgan County Sorghum Festival 2009

Since 1971, Morgan County and thousands of visitors have celebrated the Sorghum Festival. The mule-drawn cane mill, steaming vats, and little jugs of sorghum molasses set the stage for three full days of Kentucky mountain heritage. Live music, a parade, the Old Country Store, Sorghum Queen crowned at annual Bowl Game, and 100 art and craft displays fill West Liberty with sight, sound, and excitement.
