In celebration of 225 years of statehood, Shaker Village and other destinations across the Commonwealth have been included on Kentucky Tourism’s Kentucky Bucket List. While the Shaker Village bucket list could indeed be endless, here a few things we don’t want you to miss this summer:
Join us for Well Crafted: Brews + Bands. Hurry, it’s this weekend! Sample more than 40 brews in the craft beer tent, while enjoying live music on two stages. Tickets are just $25.
Cruise under High Bridge aboard the Dixie Belle. Enjoy a relaxing ride aboard Shaker Village’s 115-passenger Dixie Belle Riverboat through high limestone cliffs and untouched natural beauty.
Check out Music on the Lawn! Every Friday and Saturday night through October, The Trustees’ Table Lawn features live music around the fire pits with specialty cocktails, drinks and yard games for the young at heart.
Bring the kids! There are farm animals to meet, creeks to play in and tons of places to explore around here. Kids Stay, Play + Eat Free during June and July, so plan your family getaway soon.
Try something new. Paddle + Yoga days are July 8 and 22. Join us for a special day of paddling and yoga activities, like Hike + Yoga, Candlelight Yoga, Glow Paddle Night Tours and more. Participate in one activity, or choose several for a full day of adventure—the choice is yours.
Spend the evening in search of your favorite brews at our Hike for Beer on July 8. Enjoy a short hike to a secret location for a summertime bash complete with good tunes and local brews.
Save the date for our annual Craft Fair on August 5 and 6.
Not featured on this list are weekend wagon rides, hiking, our garden volunteer program, new exhibits and daily adventures, Discovery Treks and SO MUCH MORE.
