Mayfield - Graves County, KY

It’s been said that Mayfield-Graves County puts the "Wild" in Wild West KY. It could be because of our Wild West KY BBQ. After all, Graves County is home to the Fancy Farm Picnic, where generations of families come together on the first Saturday of August each year to prepare BBQ the old-fashioned way, by the ton, in open pits, and on church grounds. Or is it our 1880's Wild West Town? Maybe it’s our Haunted Graves Festival in October. Could be it’s the Wooldridge Monuments, known as the "Strange Procession that Never Moves". We’re not exactly sure, but we’re certain you’ll find your own wild while you’re here.
