Springfest returns to Toonerville Trolley Park in Old Louisville | New
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – Old Louisville’s biggest spring festival and market was held late this year.
It was the ninth annual Old Louisville Springfest as food and vendors returned to Toonerville Trolley Park.
The event brought together 10 food trucks and 80 artisan vendors from eight different states. Some of them sell products that you can only find at Springfest.
Springfest event president Kirk Stewart said that due to the increase in COVID-19 cases, the spring event had to be pushed further into the fall.
“The easy thing would have been not to have the event this year, but we felt like we owed the arts community to have this event and frankly the neighborhood wanted it too,” said Stewart.
The event also featured a LouVax booth. People 21 and older who received the Johnson and Johnson vaccines from the booth also received a free adult drink.

Money raised from the event will go to the Neighborhood Association to help reduce crime and keep old Louisville looking great.
“This is our opportunity to showcase this amazing neighborhood which is the largest collection of Victorian homes in the country and is located here in the heart of old Louisville,” said Stewart.
