The Gaslight Festival Story
What started as a small street party in 1969 has grown to become the 5th largest festival in the region, and has taken its place as one of the top 20 festivals in the Southeast. The Gaslight Festival, hosted by The Chamber Jeffersontown, brings an estimated 200,000 visitors to Jeffersontown every year.
Centered in the small-town ambiance of Gaslight Square, the festival has evolved into a eight-day extravaganza that has become a time-honored tradition of Jeffersontown. It is through the efforts of The Chamber that the festival now hosts a motorcycle rally, car show, golf scramble, 5K, parade, balloon glow, children’s playground, live entertainment and over 200 arts, crafts and commercial booths. The Gaslight Festival is always the 3rd weekend in September.
Of the many events Chamber members can get involved in, the Gaslight Festival offers a fun opportunity to connect with the community. Every September businesses and residents come together to showcase Jeffersontown as a great place to live, work and play!
The Gaslight Festival is a PET FREE FESTIVAL. No pets are allowed on festival grounds. Although we love our furry companions, please leave them at home.
