Louisville, KY, April 04, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- The Toonerville Trolley Neighborhood Association (TTNA) and District 6 Metro Council President David James are proud to again present the 7th Annual Old Louisville Springfest on Saturday, May 19th from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. EST.
Springfest is moving a few blocks from First Street to the revitalized Toonerville Trolley Park in historic Old Louisville. The festival presents a wonderfully eclectic selection of vendors, artists, nonprofit organizations, the Kosair Charities Kidzone (Saturday from noon to 6 p.m.) and tasty festival food choices with local food trucks. For the adults, cocktails, beer and live music and the now-famous bourbon slushes will also be on tap.
In previous years, the Old Louisville Springfest has brought between 7,000 and 10,000 visitors to this beautiful neighborhood – the largest collection of Victorian homes in the country. The aim of Springfest is to celebrate not only all things “Old Louisville” but also “local” and to raise much-needed funds to support local restoration and beautification projects.
The Toonerville Neighborhood Association has worked with the Metro Parks on improving Toonerville Trolley Park for about 5 years. "We have replaced rusted out children’s play equipment with safe new structures, repaired walkways, added trees and benches and partnered with Louisville Dog Run Association adding a dog park. Thanks to amazing support from organizations like Kosair Charites, Metro Council President David James, Heaven Hill, Genscape and other local businesses and individuals, the park has been completely transformed. The neighborhood is excited to be moving this successful event to a reinvigorated Toonerville Trolley Park,” shared Kirk Stewart, chairperson of the Springfest planning committee.
Vendors, artists and food trucks interested in being a part of Springfest are encouraged to apply before April 15. The final date for applications to be accepted is May 1. Visit the Springfest website for all of the information and application process. (www.oldlouisvilleSpringfest.org)

This event is free to the public. Old Louisville Springfest visitors, artists or vendors may inquire at the firstname.lastname@example.org.
