JANE AUSTEN FESTIVAL

CONGRATULATIONS TO LOCUST GROVE
AND THE JANE AUSTEN SOCIETY OF LOUISVILLE

The Jane Austen Festival at Locust Grove has grown in popularity and attendance each of the seven years it has been held in Louisville at Locust Grove. And this year it was better than ever.

Last year the number of attendees in period Regency dress fell a bit short of breaking the record which has been held  since 2009 by the festival each fall in Bath, England.

Not so this year! This year 491 folks dressed in period costume attended at Locust Grove for the promenade. While the committee is still reviewing the video to make sure that each person was in authentic period dress, the record surely will hold ....at least until the festival in Bath!
