Every September, Courthouse Square in Bedford, Ky., is transformed into a weekend celebration of apples. The Trimble County Apple Festival has been held during the second full weekend in September since 1991 as a fundraiser for local schools and organizations. It’s an opportunity for the community and their guests to enjoy camaraderie, live entertainment, arts and crafts, and plenty of apple pie and apple cider.
A wet-dry vote in December 2016 led to alcohol sales within the city limits of Bedford. Trimble County itself is dry. Two liquor licenses have been sold and approved in Bedford to attract restaurateurs and other business owners. The Little Kentucky River Winery, a vineyard and winery in Bedford provides tastings inside a restored country home.
One of the smallest counties in Kentucky, Trimble County was founded in 1837 and named after attorney Robert Trimble.
