Who grills the best steak? Who grills the best burger? These and other titles will be on the line at the 8th Annual Kentucky's Fort Harrod Beef Festival - held May 31-June 1, 2013, at the Mercer County Fairgrounds in Harrodsburg, Kentucky. The festival weekend is chocked full of activities for all age groups. The festival kicks off on Tuesday night with Cattle Crawl, a progressive dinner featuring beef cuisine from local restaurants. Thursday night will feature a new event, Bourbon Tasting sponsored by Jim Beam Distilleries at Kentucky Fudge Company. Friday night, the festival really gets going as teams fire up those grills to serve FREE burger and sauce samples; while the crowd enjoys music, KY Proud wine and cheese samples and shop at the I Love Cows Dustin Worthington Silent Auction. Saturday has a wide range of events starting with a delicious, hearty Steak & Egg Breakfast and 5K Run/Walk. Teams will serve brisket and steak to the public. Come out and listen to talented musicians, visit with local vendors, browse through the antique cars, and bring the kids out for some FREE fun games! New this year we have inflatables and lazer tag for the kids for FREE and paintball! There is no charge to get into the festival, but a small charge for tasting and some games.
