Welcome to Harlan County, where there’s always something exciting going on! Whether you’re here for our biggest party of the year at the Poke Sallet Festival or looking to get a little dirty at thrilling off-road events like the Southern Shine Crawl or the Fall Crawl, we’ve got you covered. Harlan County is a place of celebration, adventure, and unforgettable memories.

We like to think we’re on top of all the fun stuff happening around here, but now and then, a cool event might sneak by us. Maybe we missed it in our social feeds, or it’s a new thing we haven’t heard about yet. Whatever the reason, we don’t want to miss out, and neither do you! Got an event you’re excited about? Shoot us an email at harlantourism@gmail.com or send us a message on our facebook page at Visit Harlan County. As long as it meets our parameters, we’ll happily add it to our calendar. We’re all about community and tourism events that bring people together.

So, let’s make every day a reason to celebrate in Harlan County. Share your event, and let’s fill our calendar with fun for everyone!
