Come celebrate Kentucky’s 222nd birthday at the Thomas D. Clark Center for Kentucky History. The Kentucky Historical Society has put together a proper birthday bash featuring a concert at 11 a.m. by President Lincoln’s Own Band, from Spielberg’s blockbuster movie Lincoln, along with entertainment (beginning at 10 a.m. when the Center's doors open and ongoing throughout the morning) by the Capital City Historical Dancers and Musicians.

Then (starting at noon) dine on Kentucky fare and delve into how powerful the past can be in shaping tomorrow when award-winning novelist, poet and farmer Wendell Berry and State Historian Dr. James Klotter share their vision of the Commonwealth’s future. KET veteran commentator Renee Shaw moderates.

And don't miss the inspiring stories and tributes from Kentuckians representing all walks of life during the installation of commemorative bricks on the Pathway Through History in the Center's beautiful Cralle-Day Garden (10:30 a.m.).
