Date: TBD

 Bluegrass Fairgrounds at Masterson Station Park


It is with a heavy heart that we announce Crave 2020 will not occur this August as originally planned. We are hoping and praying for an opportunity to reschedule later this fall. As always, the safety and enjoyment of our volunteers, staff, vendors, musicians and attendees remain our top priority. You all know the drill, you have read this before.

We are exploring opportunities to bring events back to the community during the fall season, and look forward to sharing that information with all of you when we can. In the meantime, please consider doing a few things to keep the spirit of Crave Food + Music Festival alive. 

First, our non-profit partner, Greenhouse17, continues to operate in these difficult times, helping people harmed by intimate partner abuse at any time of the day, every day of the year. If you have the means and the will, please consider donating to this incredible organization HERE.


Second, Crave is a community event committed to celebrating the vast diversity of food and music in our beautiful city; and we hope you'll still do that this summer. Go visit Sav and enjoy the best fufu around. Have Crank & Boom ice cream delivered to your door for the Fourth of July. Pick up incredible Thai and Vietnamese food at Jasmine Rice. Say hello to Lesme while picking up homemade pasta at Pasta Garage. 


Starting this week, we will have the wonderful food makers from Craves past listed on our website from years past. Enjoy their patios, incorporate their carryout into your backyard picnic plans, and support them in any way you can.


Finally, when live music begins again, be the first in line to sing along. Lexington is a unique and wonderful place to live. We are thrilled to be a part of this community, and can't wait to celebrate it with all of you in the near future.
