This year's Jane Austen Festival at Locust Grove Historic Home is better than ever.
Each year we have a group of guests who come and take part in the two day event which includes the day long lectures and demonstrations and a ball on the Saturday night where the costumes are just like something out of Pride and Prejudice.
Each year activities, lectures and demonstrations are added. This year one very popular class called "Dressing Mr. Darcy" showed the layers of clothing a fashionable gentleman had to wear during the Regency period. Many vendors participating with wares such as teapots and teas and fabrics of the period set up on the front lawn of the 1790 Locust Grove.

  1. The Kentucky Derby and the festival both are fantastic fun and, as a lifelong Louisvillian, I welcome you to the event and to our fine city. Just keep in mind that there are some things you should do while here and some things you probably shouldn’t, at least if having fun is your motivation. If you really want fun and feel relax then book a Kentucky Derby Rentals
