Community Heroes Festival (OFFSITE EVENT)
Heroes don’t always wear capes…
Come meet everyday heroes that live right here in your hometown! We’ll showcase local charities, organizations, and people who give back to the community in amazing ways. Learn about volunteer work at our local animal shelter, hear stories from a veteran and local police officer, and be inspired by photos and travel tales demonstrating the impact even a small connection can make. Plus, you can befriend adoptable bunnies, paint hive boxes that will be installed around the county as public art, and explore a real-life fire engine and police cruiser!
Listen to our heroes tell stories of how they give back to the community—and discover how you can make a difference too. Confirmed organizations and individuals include:
- Alley Cat Advocates
- Bee Is for Bullitt County
Updated 3/20: Due to a schedule conflict, Bee Is for Bullitt County won’t be able to make it to the Community Heroes Festival. But you can still enjoy painting hive boxes that they will place around the county as functional public art!
