The Good People Festival is back for its fifth year, taking over the Baker Hunt Art & Cultural Center in Covington on July 22. 

Founded in 2014 by local business owner Rachel DesRochers, the mind behind Grateful Grahams and businesses like the Northern Kentucky Incubator Kitchen, the fest focuses on building community and giving thanks. 

“We wanted to create a signature event for Grateful Grahams that focuses on community, gratitude, and music,” says DesRochers in a press release. “The Good People Festival is that — a day of good people coming together to do good, and be part of the gratitude that happens from building community."

The free fest, which takes place from noon-6 p.m. on Sunday features:

  • Live music
  • Cold beer from MadTree
  • Local food vendors
  • Local artisans
  • A gratitude wall
  • A kids' craft area with Robot Inside Crafting Company

Bands include: Young Heirlooms, Chelsea Ford & The Trouble, The Newbees, Stephen Williams, Maria Carrelli, Krysta Peterson & The Queen City Band and Ben Knight & The Welldiggers.
