The Lexington Lions Club, Bluegrass Fair Management, and Kissel Entertainment will officially kick off the 2019 Bluegrass Fair with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and proclamation on behalf of Lexington Mayor Linda Gorton proclaiming June 6, 2019 as "Bluegrass Fair Day in Lexington," to be presented by 2nd District Lexington City Council member Josh McCurn. 

Who:             
 
The Lexington Lions Club, one of the oldest clubs in Kentucky, provides a wide range of direct services to the community. Over the past decade the Lexington Lions Club has contributed more than $2 million to programs assisting the blind and visually impaired, the deaf and hearing impaired and diabetics—particularly children—through vision and hearing screenings, the purchase of hundreds of pairs of eyeglasses each year, the purchase of hearing aids for eligible individuals, a retreat for the deaf/blind, a camp for diabetic children, and the annual funding of much-needed eye surgeries. The club also supports many community organizations through annual contributions. 

In addition, the Lexington Lions Club Bluegrass Fair, held annually each summer in Lexington since 1961, provides a popular entertainment venue for tens of thousands of Central Kentuckians each summer and raises funds for the club’s charitable endeavors.

June 6, 2019 is opening night for the 58th annual Bluegrass Fair presented by the Lexington Lions Club. The Fair runs June 6-16. As part of the opening night events, Fair-goers can ride rides free from 5:00 pm-6:00 pm.
