Details about the Gaslight Festival:
What started as a small street party in 1969 and has grown to become the 5th largest festival in the region and has taken its place as one of the top 20 in the Southeast.  The Gaslight Festival, hosted by The Chamber, brings an estimated 200,000 visitors to Jeffersontown every year. 

Centered in the small-town ambience of Gaslight Square, the Festival has evolved into a eight-day extravaganza that has become a time-honored tradition of Jeffersontown.  It is through the efforts of the Chamber that the Festival now boasts a motorcycle rally, golf scramble, a 5K run/walk, a parade, balloon glow, bicycle tour, children's playground, live entertainment and over 140 arts, crafts and commercial booths.

Of the many events in which Chamber members can become involved, the Gaslight Festival is the most fun and rewarding.  Businesses and residents come together to showcase Jeffersontown as a great place to live, work and play!
