Court Days

October Court Days

Initiated in the 18th Century, Court Day quickly became the annual trading day for much of Eastern Kentucky and still is today. Mount Sterling delights in this over 210+ year tradition when approx. 100,000 people from all parts of the country gather for the four-day event.  Always starting on the Friday before the third Monday in October, Court Day specializes in many different arts and crafts, food and music.  We invite you to come be a part of our Court Day Festival. Court Day Picture 1.jpg
