Court Days

​​​​We look forward to seeing you at this year's festival scheduled for October 14-17, 2022.

History of the Event

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 225+ year tradition when over 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. Got something special you’d like to sell? We would love to have your unique crafts, antiques, or one of a kind specialty items become the most desirable thing at Court Day! We still have vendor spaces available!
