2012 Morgan County Sorghum Festival

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.

Come join us and experience the 42nd annual Morgan County Sorghum Festival during the last full weekend of September, the 28th, 29th, & 30th, 2012, for a taste of pure Kentucky.
