Annual Horse Cave Heritage Festival

The Horse Cave Heritage Festival consists of craft artisans, games, antique tractors, cars, and trucks and an array of business and food booths. It is held the 3rd weekend of September. Each year thousand of local and visiting residents come to celebrate the heritage of this small community, often gathering as families and friends to remember a more simple time.


We also have a Pedal Pull, Sidewalk Chalk Art Contest, Quilt Show, 3K Run, and Inflatables for the kids and more. New events are added each year. For more information, call Crystal James - Festival Chairman at 270-786-2680
