The Forward Kentucky Calendar

We share this calendar as a free service to progressives across Kentucky. It includes events from a wide range of organizations across the state. If you open the event details, you can share the event to social media directly from here.

It takes quite a bit of time to maintain, so if you would like to show your support for this work, you can “purchase” whatever amount of support you would like on our Donate page. Or, you can join the hundreds who have already become a Supporting or Sustaining member. And, if you have an event you would like added to the calendar, you can click the “Post Your Event” button, or send all the details to Webmaster@ForwardKY.com. Thanks!
