The vendor application has been released by the Southeast Kentucky Chamber of Commerce for Hillbilly Days 2022. Due the the pandemic, Hillbilly Days 2021 was cancelled, and it has been 2 years since the festival has been held. With chamber releasing the vendor application, there is hope that maybe this year’s event will take place.
Hillbilly Days has been a staple of Pike County festivals for over 40 years. Held in April (with 2022’s event being scheduled for April April 21-22-23), Hillbilly Days brings in over 100,000 visitors from all around the world. Featuring 3 stages of live music, over 300 vendor booths, goofy outfits and an outlandish parade (which is known for showcasing hillbilly jalopies and funny folks in goofy outfits), this event is one of Kentucky’s most popular.
Hillbilly Days serves as a fundraiser for the Shriners Hospital for Children in Lexington, Kentucky, a hospital that serves children from across Kentucky, including the local area. Stay tuned for more details on Hillbilly Days 2022.
