Besides St James Court, do a search for Kentucky on ZAPP in the participating shows list.

Debbie, do you know about my "mother" site, ArtFairCalendar.com? If not, visit that site and check out the listings there. Although not exhaustive, it does list the better ones.
Yes, thanks
this is what I do , when searching for new shows, though you may have already exhausted all these ideas.....
besides the usual : Artist to Artist.....Art fair Resouce /web site......Sunshine artist (back of the mag. has alot )......Art fair Calendar ......
then, I google any city in the area I am interested--
usually a Chamber of Commerce pops up & they often have events.
or I google ....."whatever city" Art Show .....and usually different shows come up .
Also , you can look at other Artists webs & see what shows they are doing ....perferably , in your case , KY artist , and google those .

I really don't know of any shows in KY , except StJames and Berea.......but , there's gotta be hundreds.
Hopefully someone will come up with some suggestions for you .

Have you considered Ohio, I know of a few there , big & small, or are you just trying to stay local ?

here's one , that was listed in Sunshine Artist ....I know nothing about it personally ---
Lexington, 34th American Founders Bank Woodland Art Fair ,
its Aug 15-16...but , who knows??? you might still get in , if interested.

Thanks but I applied already and couldn't get in! I'm doing Louisville Summitt and one at LaGrange next year. I do them every year. I heard about some in Ohio, which ones do you recommend?
I did Franscico's Farm in Midway, Kentucky a couple years ago and I thought it had potential. Even though I didn't do well enough to try again since it's a long drive for me I think it could become a good show. It's very well run and not real expensive. Some of the best artist hospitality I have ever seen. It is in the middle of beautiful horse country and attracted an art appreciative crowd. It is held in the second half of June.
I don't know if these shows will be of any interest to you --all I know are the few , that I have tried .

My work is more traditional, so , these may not work for you ???

the Sauerkraut Festival oct 10-11
in Waynesville,OH........my 2D artist friend did well here also....though she is more traditonal also.
ALOT of people go through this show though --if you aren't adverse to doing Festivals -with food in their name :)

for a few small shows , there are, cloudshows.biz , they have shows in Findlay , Maumee and I think a couple other places . Again, more traditional....and crafty .

than of course the Winterfair shows.....in Cinn. & Columbus.

I just recieved an 'Arts Festival Directory " , from the ODC ,inwhich there are tons of shows listed --
if you have a certain date open--I would be glad to look it up & let you know , what they have listed .

I did the Sauerkraut Festival once. Non stop flow of people but they didn't like what I did so I barely covered expenses. Traditional and country crafts fly off the walls.

Thank-you all, I do horses and known in the equestrian community. I do the Summitt and LaGrange every year and want to do more in Kentucky. Thanks you-all for your suggestions. I'm trying to fill in summer, November, and around March thru what-ever. In other words, just want to tour Kentucky! Please send me links to all the shows or directory's that you have. I do alot of shows here in Florida for 30 years and KNOW THEM ALL so if you want suggestions about them please let me know, but remember, Florida is a hard sell and once you go South of West Palm Beach you have to know how to be a salesman! Avoid Dade County unless you have work that appeals to the Cuban community and know Spanish! I haven't shown in Dade County (Miami) for over 10 years and I live only 10 minutes away!
