50th Annual Lakefest Celebration

July 5 @ 4:00 pm - July 6 @ 10:30 pm

Lakefest Celebration in Jamestown, Kentucky

Join us on the Historic Square in Jamestown for a festival 50 years in the making! LAKEFEST is Russell County’s longest-running Independence Day celebration. What began as a simple celebration in a small town has grown into a two-day festival featuring pageants, vendors, children’s events, and one of Kentucky’s premier 5K/10K races. Our Saturday night concert draws thousands of folks who fill downtown to enjoy some great music and a spectacular fireworks display. This year’s Saturday night concert headliner is Grammy, CMA, and AMA award winner, Shenandoah. Shenandoah made their first public appearance 30 years ago. They are celebrating this milestone with the nationwide “Shenandoah 30th Anniversary Tour” of which Jamestown is proud to be a part. Mark your calendar and make plans to be in Jamestown July 5th & 6th for our 50th Anniversary LAKEFEST Celebration!
