The Kentuck Festival of the Arts is the premier art event in West Alabama each year. This year marks the festival’s 46th year, and organizers are putting out a call – volunteers are needed.

Would you like to get involved?

If you were among the thousands of people who attended this past weekend’s 45th Annual Kentuck Festival of the Arts, you know: The talented artists involved took their crafts to new heights. With so many wonderful participants, no doubt choosing winners was a daunting task.

Without delay, here are the winners this year – and congratulations to all of them. 

The Kentuck Festival of the Arts has brought artists, tourists and local families together in Northport on the third weekend in October for decades. This year, the Festival celebrates its 45th year. And one local group that has been involved with the Festival for many years is, once again, looking forward to being a part of the special event. 

George Shelton, one of Tuscaloosa’s teachers of all things woodworking, has been involved with the Kentuck Arts Festival since its earliest days. And for the past decade or so, Shelton, and the Woodworkers Association of West Alabama, has offered a build your own birdhouse project.
