Munfordville is fabulous in any season,
but FALL is really something special.
1. The White Pumpkin
Last year the Brew House on Main Street featured their “white pumpkin” and the love affair began with all the locals & travelers alike. Think of a cozy film starring white chocolate and pumpkin spice with guest appearances by cinnamon and nutmeg. White Chocolate not your thing? It’s okay. They also offer pumpkin spice and Salted Caramel Lattes, plus their regular menu of wonderful coffees, espressos and lattes plus teas.

Fudge is definitely for fall & the Munfordville Pool Hall has a phenomenal Hot Fudge Cake that is delicious. Word on the street is that they sell out of these quick some days so don’t delay! If you get there and they’ve already sold out they still have loads to choose from, like their local favorite fried apple pie and their shakes that people drive for miles to grab up. They also have juicy cheeseburgers and lots of other specials to choose from.

There’s no better time to enjoy the outdoors than fall & Munfordville offers so many ways to opt outside. Enjoy a walk in the park at the Green River Park & Arboretum. Hike the Jenny Wilson Byrd Trail. Canoe the Green River. Play a round of disc golf. Stroll through town & enjoy the history here.

We have a great variety of small town happenings in the fall. Civil War Days is September 13-14 this year, complete with re-enactments of the Battle for the Bridge, kids activities, live music and a Blue-Gray Ball on Saturday night. The Big Buffalo Crossing BBQ Cook-Off is a Kansas City Barbecue Society sanctioned event where are town is filled with the smell of sizzle and oak. The Cook-Off is October 17-19 on the square in Munfordville. AND if you’ve never been in a small town during a football Homecoming parade, you’re invited to enjoy ours. We will add that date to this as soon as it’s set.
5. Quirky Fun
Find a Munfordville landmark to photograph. There’s really no shortage of them here. We have old Coke murals and a Civil War mural. We are even home to Kentucky Stonehenge. Pose by the town fountain, read the history about that here, or grab some sunflowers from our local florist and create your own focal point. And don’t forget to stop by the Munfordville Welcome Center to begin your fun. It’s quirky central, complete with Munfordville’s own pet birds and fish. Gather up a fun souvenir and talk to Patti about where to head next!
