FANCY FARM – While the Fancy Farm picnic is known around the state and country for political speaking and theatrics, the picnic is a whole lot more.

For many western Kentucky families the annual event marks a homecoming for many relatives. For St. Jerome Catholic Church, it’s the major fundraiser that provides financing for their mission work. For many it’s simply a fun family outing with great food, games, and interaction with family and friends in the community.

Here’s a look back at the sights and sounds of Fancy Farm 2017.
