On Saturday, July 28, the South End’s finest restaurants, businesses and organizations will take the spotlight at the third annual South Points Buy Local Fair, held at Iroquois Park. The event will be followed by the Burnt Knob Music Fest, which will feature local and regional acts.
The main fest is free and open to the public from 3 to 7 p.m. It’ll include dozens of booths, food from places like Shack in the Back BBQ, Tory’s Plater Nigerian Food, and SaSa Samosa, among many others. Plus, there will be local wine and beer available, as well as a kids’ area, a cooling tent and a silent auction.
It’s hosted by the Louisville Independent Business Alliance (LIBA), which has one goal in mind for South Points.
“The fair is designed to showcase unique businesses that contribute to the distinct character of South Louisville,” says Jennifer Rubenstein, director of LIBA, in a news release. “The fair gives us a chance to bring many of them together for both neighborhood residents and the rest of the city to discover and enjoy.”
Following the event at the Iroquois Amphitheater is the Burnt Know Music Fest, which will feature performances by Villa Mure, The Strings of Indian Creek, Bridge 19, and Beth Bombara. Tickets are $15 at the gate.
