our beautiful Kentucky black bears.
All vendors may set up for free on a first-come, first-served basis.
Setup may begin at 9:00am the day of the festival.
Awards will be given for the best black bear-themed wood carving,
painting, dessert, face paint, rock painting, vendor table, and song.
There will be educational presentations by the Forest Service, a bear

There will also be music, games, and other prizes!
Come learn about our amazing state treasure, and how we can co-exist
peacefully with these animals.
