Bonny Wise, who has organized the four Jane Austen Festivals in Louisville, sent us a video put together by one of their members with some images from the 2011 Festival.
(Here’s a link to the video page, which has some more information about the video.)
We have attended two Festivals, and got a little nostalgic watching this. It really does a great job showing the beautiful grounds of Locust Grove, where the festival is held, and the fun that is to be had there. It also looked like an especially good ball (and was at a new venue).
One thought on “Enjoy the Louisville Jane Austen Festival vicariously”
This was my first time at the Jane Austen Festival. I visited the Festival with my daughter and granddaughter who live in Louisville. We all loved it and hope to return next year.
This is what we are doing in Algonquin, Illinois at Victorian Rose Garden Bed & Breakfast to celebrate Jane Austen’s books over the next year. Starting in October/November we will be having “Sense and Sensibility” themed teatimes, followed by “Pride and Prejudice” in December/January, “Mansfield Park” in February/March, “Emma” in April/May, “Northanger Abbey” in June/July, and “Persuasion” in August/September. We are in the process of getting this information on our website http://www.sleepandeat.com. Checkout our Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/VictorianRoseGarden for pictures from the Louisville Festival.
Our speaker for the Jane Austen Teatimes, Linda Levengood, has given us fabulous reviews of your Jane Austen Handbook.
