Dodging the Roadkill: Review – The Kentucky State Barbecue Festival

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyDanville, KY – I discovered the Kentucky State Barbeque Festival quite by accident. 

On a trip home from another assignment, I had the greater part of a day to kill.  In a search for events in Kentucky, I discovered this festival.  It was already in progress, and it was on my way home, so I took a beautiful ride through the Kentucky countryside and discovered Danville, Kentucky.

Danville has a population of just under 17,000.  In 2011, Money Magazine placed Danville as the fourth best place to retire in the United States.

It’s the home to Centre College, which hosted the U.S Vice Presidential debates in 2000, and 2012.
