Fresh Food at the Far
To find the freshest produce from local farms, you have to check out the Jeffersontown Farmers Market. This market is held year round on the first and third Saturdays mornings of each month. The market features a variety of vendors, such as farmers, bakers, fishermen, and more, all selling their goods to Jeffersontown locals. This means that you can find the freshest produce, baked goods, fish, eggs, and cheese in the area, all in one convenient place. All products at the market are grown or made in the region and many are even part of the Kentucky Proud agricultural program.
Friends and neighbors gather in the quaint Gaslight Square each September to take part in Jeffersontown's biggest festival, the Gaslight Festival. Nearly 200,000 people flock to the city on the third week of September each year. With so many fun and exciting events, games, and activities, it is easy to see why. The festival currently features a car show, a 5K run/walk, live concerts, a kids' play area, and over 150 arts and crafts booths. So grab the family and enjoy a day at the Gaslight Festival. With so much to do, everyone is sure to have a great time.
Veterans Memorial Par
Whether you are looking to throw a summer party or take a quiet stroll, Veteran's Memorial Park is the perfect place to go. This community park is open daily from dusk to dawn, with plenty of space to run around or enjoy a picnic. If you want to throw a barbecue, you can even rent one of the park's six pavilions, each of which can accommodate 30 to 100 people. Then after you have filled up on good food, you can shoot hoops on the basketball court, throw the ball around on the baseball field, or simply let the kids loose on the playground.
