~ 2015 Black Gold Festival September 17-19 ~

  • 2015 Theme: “Come See How We Play”
  • The festival will be filled with events around hunting, fishing, camping, ATV riding and any other outdoor wildlife adventure. This idea was born in October 2014 when Fish and Wildlife joined with us to bring you the greatest festival ever. To help celebrate the theme, Tim Farmer, host and executive producer of Ky Afield, will be our Parade Marshall and will be on hand for an meet and greet. Keep listening to WSGS and WKIC for more exciting updates coming soon!!!

  • Magician Mark Comley will return in 2015 and we are very excited about his upcoming family and children oriented shows!
