Trimble County, Ky.: Cultural celebration

Bedford blooms in the fall, especially in September for the annual Trimble County Apple Festival. The weekend event is known far and wide, and takes place at Courthouse Square with artisans demonstrating their crafts, a quilt raffle, live music, vendors galore and apple pie. Held since 1991, the festival raises much-needed funds for local schools and nonprofit groups that exist for the betterment of the community. Bedford Rotary Club was among the grant recipients from the 2018 event, as were the Trimble County Elementary School’s art department, Trimble County Little League and Trimble County Public Library.

One of the smallest counties in Kentucky, Trimble County was formed out of portions of Gallatin, Henry and Oldham counties in 1836.
