White squirrel Festival

Our Mission Statement

Kenton’s White Squirrel Festival is a notable, week-long celebration centered around July 4th each year. Our Festival Committee, Local Businesses, and Volunteer Community Members work hard to make this week fun and exciting for all to enjoy. Our festival draws not only local spectators, but we have patrons that drive from Kentucky, Missouri, and other states to view our fireworks and partake in festivities. We also host a Christmas Celebration each year as well!

You can find out more information on our events, how to volunteer, and what will be going on throughout the year by visiting this page often! Be sure to also follow our Facebook page!

Volunteer opportunities and more will be listed on this webpage along with our Facebook page. You can conveniently send a message to us on there for more information as well!
