The Daniel Boone Festival is held each October, and is Barbourville, Kentucky's major celebration of the year -- bringing home many folks who've migrated elsewhere and attracting thousands of visitors. According to the Daniel Boone Festival Committee on its website Daniel Boone Festival, the festival is "the oldest continuous celebration in the state honoring the man who embodied the pioneer spirit of Kentucky." The festival was created in 1948 by Union College professor Karl Bleyl.
