Remembering JFK   50 Years


JFK Fan Fair

Tuesday, November 5th 6:30-8PM

Kentucky Museum

1444 KY Street, Bowling Green, KY 42101


Join us for a free, fun JFK "Fan Fair" as we celebrate the life and times of an American icon.


There will be a variety of activities:

  • JFK Trivia
  • Practicing Presidential Signature
  • Boston Accent Contest
  • 60s Inspired Refreshments
  • Memorabilia Show and Tell
  • and much more

This event should appeal to anyone who considers themselves a "Kennedy Fan."  The KY Museum will feature photos and related items from our collection.

Do you have your own collection of JFK memorabilia?  Tables will be available to display your treasures and share with others.  A portion of the evening will be an informal "show and tell" so guests can share memories or memorabilia with attendees.

Do you have any early 60s fashion attire?  We'd love to see some of our guests in vintage clothing!

This is an evening to informally gather to reflect, explore and celebrate the legacy of President Kennedy.

For more information, contact  or call 745-6082.
