• The Berea Craft Festival was named the top Arts and Crafts destination by Kentucky Living Magazine during an awards ceremony Thursday night. 

Destination: The Pinnacles in Berea, a forest with hiking trails and hidden caves, scenic overlooks and scented wildflowers. Each year for three fabulous festival days, stunning art, delicious food, wandering musicians, dancers and artisans converge at the Indian Fort Theater at The Pinnacles.

What an opportunity to enjoy folk, jazz and mountain music, a variety of foodstuffs and browsing for handcrafted, one-of-a-kind treasures—pottery, jewelry, dolls, baskets, paintings, woodcrafts and more. (Kentucky Living)
