Come on out to the Kentucky State Fair in Louisville on Friday, August 16 from 9 am to 7 pm and meet Curious George and our very own Dave Shuffett, sign up for prizes, and receive a free KET shopping bag.

The KET booth was busy all day last year! When you stop by our booth, you can pick up the latest issue of Visions magazine, our must-have monthly guide for knowing what’s airing on KET and our latest events. Also, tell us which shows are your favorite, and meet the staff members who help make KET great. Dave will also meet-and-greet with Kentucky Life fans and sign autographs.
