The 2012 Logan County Tobacco and Heritage Festival
October 6 - 13, 2012
Come on out! Come on home! Is it a festival? Is it a homecoming? It’s both! For 56 years, Logan Countians have rolled out the welcome mat for native sons and plenty of visitors during the Logan County Tobacco & Heritage Festival.
From the first Saturday thru the second Saturday in October, thousands of people participate in the Festival. If you’re in the active crowd, come run or walk in the Jesse James 5K, the 1 –Mile Senior Stroll, or swing a club in the Golf Scramble. If shopping is more your thing, enjoy the 150+ craft and flea market booths.
“Spectating” is always a favorite – come watch the parade in historic downtown Russellville, a re-enactment of the Jesse James Bank Robbery of 1868, live music on the Square, karaoke, or one of the pageants. And, hey, who doesn’t love some good ol’ festival food? Everything from famous ribeye sandwiches, the great polish sausages, to almost anything you can think of deep-fried on a stick - we got it!
The theme for the 2012 Tobacco & Heritage Festival is “County of Champions.”
We’re celebrating all kinds of champs – sports, academics, volunteers, family – you name it! Who is your champion?
We invite you and your family to join us October 6-13, 2012! Pick your event(s) and enjoy a piece of Logan County history.
Join in the Festival Fun!
