The Whippoorwill Festival, located in the beautiful foothills of Appalachia in Central Kentucky, teaches earth-friendly and sustainable living skills in a joyful, healthy, family-friendly atmosphere.
The Whippoorwill Festival celebrates our Appalachian heritage and traditions while helping prepare our minds and bodies for a future world of climate change and a decreased supply of fossil fuels. Together we are building a community and working toward creating a society that will be more resilient in the face of climate change and upcoming resource shortages.
The Whippoorwill Festival is an all-volunteer event featuring over 75 earth-friendly workshops, tent camping, healthy, home-cooked meals, and guest speakers, plus campfires, Appalachian mountain music and contra dancing in the evenings.
To support the local economy, The Whippoorwill Festival features booths and displays from local artists and craft workers from Berea, Kentucky's artisan capital.
