The How-To Festival

Learn how to do more than 100 things in 5 hours!

Want to learn how to belly dance? Make origami? Raise chickens? Brew Turkish coffee? These are just a sample of more than 100 things you can learn in five hours at the Louisville Free Public Library’s annual How-To Festival.

This year’s Festival is a mix of past favorites—how to make a robot, bullet journal, and train your dog—along with new lessons, such as how to dance a Renaissance jig, spot fake news, and write Arabic calligraphy. Kid-friendly activities include how to make ice cream in a bag, how to play percussion from around the world, and more!

LFPL’s annual How-To Festival is Saturday, May 13, from 10:00 a.m–3:00 p.m. at the Main Library (301 York Street). Sessions will be located in more than 20 areas throughout the building and surrounding grounds, transforming the entire library into a giant classroom. Food trucks will be available.
