Three Rivers Art Festival Flows Into Covington

Every year the Three Rivers Art Festival is held in downtown Covington, usually in mid-November. More than 200 artists display thousands of pieces of art in a wide variety of media, and then some. There are tents, balloon arches, fun for kids activities, food, drink and music, along with souvenirs and T-shirts.

It all began back in 1987.
