Butler Co-Green River Catfish Festival

Date: July 04 - July 06, 2019
Location(s): 
Category(s):
Each year during the week of July 4th, Morgantown, Kentucky bustles with excitement as the annual Green River Catfish Festival kicks off. The festival, which has been a summer staple in Morgantown since 1980, draws people of all ages from all across Kentucky to enjoy carnival rides, pageants, a variety of food vendors, live music, square dancing, car and tractor shows, and one of the biggest, most breathtaking fireworks shows in South Central Kentucky.
Of course, it would not be the Green River Catfish Festival without the annual fishing tournament, in which anglers flock to the Green River to fish for tagged catfish for cash prizes. The tournament always has an impressive amount of tagged fish, and for the 20189festival, one catfish is tagged for a cash prize of $7,500.
There is something for everyone at the Green River Catfish Festival. Be sure to come to the Charles Black City Park in Morgantown, Kentucky July 4-6, 2019 for the 389h festival and make our festival a family tradition for years to come.
