The How-To Festival returns May 14

How-to Festival banner

Want to learn how to be circus performer? Can your own vegetables? Keep bees in your backyard? Make cake sculptures?

These are just some of the more than 50 things you can learn in five hours at the Library’s annual How-To Festival -- Saturday, May 14, 10:00 a.m–3:00 p.m. at the Main Library.

This year’s Festival is a mix of past favorites—how to do Tai Chi, homebrew beer, or grow delicious tomatoes—along with new lessons, such as how to make and decorate tasty dog treats, perform modern dance, and create digital music. Other timely topics include how to plan a cross-country trip in an electric vehicle and how to buy and sell a home in a crazy market. And thanks to our continued partnership with the Louisville Urban Agriculture Coalition, How-To will once again feature three gardening tents with classes presented by Urban Ag member groups, including Kentuckiana Beekeepers, Wild Ones, and Master Gardeners.
