Kentucky River Culture
program in May and June
Board the Dixie Belle Riverboat and take a trip into Kentucky’s past. The Kentucky River has been immensely important to Kentucky’s history since long before the time of the Shakers. This program will guide guests through the role that the river has played in both major historical events and the everyday lives of Kentuckians, from the time of the Native Americans until today. Shaker interactions with the river will be highlighted, as well as the impact that the river may have on guests’ lives.
Tickets must be purchased at the Welcome Center. Riverboat rides depart on time from nearby Shaker Landing. Please arrive at Shaker Landing 15 minutes prior to departure. Rides are subject to weather and river conditions and will only run if the temperature is above 50 degrees.
