Kelly Little Green Men Days Festival @ Richmond | Kentucky | United States

The Kelly “Little Green Men” Days Festival is focused on family fun and community fellowship. The festival is held yearly on the third weekend of August and commemorates the alleged landing of the ‘little green men’ on August 21, 1955 in Kelly, KY.

On the main music stage you will hear national and local artists performing music of all genres appropriate for all ages. Keep posted to find out who each years Headlining Artist will be. Please also join us in uplifting praise during the Glennie Lankford Outdoor Gospel Sing.

Visit the various vendor booths to locate arts and crafts, souvenirs, jewelry, books and other trinkets. There will also be non-profit booths offering a variety of community information about churches, clubs and organizations.

Don’t forget the food vendors! Each year you may find BBQ, burgers, pizza, ice cream and other delicious treats offered by our local restaurants.

Under the main Kelly Community Organization tent, you will find your community souvenirs such as Kelly “Little Green Men” Days T-shirts and buttons just to name a few. Here you may also find tickets for rides or bouncers. Be sure to visit the silent auction table for great items.
