Fancy Farm is the annual kickoff to Kentucky’s political season. Last year, COVID-19 kept us away – but in 2021 things will be back on track. Former Secretary of State Bob Babbage will emcee this year’s event which is known for its barbecue and as a news release described its “spirited atmosphere.” The annual picnic and political stumping ground is also a fundraiser for St. Jerome Catholic Church in Graves County. Fancy Farm is set to take place on August 7. The picnic begins at 10 a.m. and the speaking starts up at 2 p.m.
