All you need to know

  • Why is it called Gaslight Festival?

    The name of the Jeffersontown Gaslight Festival, held annually in Jeffersontown, Kentucky, traces back to the town's historical use of gaslights in the 1800s. The transition to electric lighting began in 1911, with a fundraising carnival in 1912. The rediscovery of an original gaslight during a 1960s renovation sparked the idea to adorn the newly renovated town square, now known as "Gaslight Square", with replica gaslights, reviving a piece of the town's heritage. This led to the inception of the Gaslight Festival, initially a small street party in 1969, which has blossomed into a significant event, attracting over 200,000 visitors annually with a vibrant array of activities and events.
