Forecastle 2010 C. Michael Stewart


The Kentucky Derby will always be the premier Spring event in Louisville,  but J. K. McKnight and Nederlander Entertainment may have just added a Summer classic to the mix.

It’s taken nine hard years for McKnight to build on his dream of hosting a local festival that combined Music, Art and Activism in his hometown. With the help of the City of Louisville, and Nederlander Entertainment, The  Forecastle Festival transformed Waterfront Park into  a wonderland for the senses.

An estimated 30,000 fans, most arriving around sunset, was treated to three beautiful evenings of music. The venue layout was comfortable and clean, with enough space to roam and enjoy the many activities the festival had to offer.

Even in three days of covering this event it was impossible to take in all the music, exhibits and art. it was a quality event, well managed and family friendly .  MORE
