History of the Parkland Neighborhood

Heritage Weekends

Heritage Weekends were a series of festivals held each weekend for several summers during the 1970s and 1980s.  Each event, held on the Belvedere in dowtown Lousville, Kentucky, featured music, dancing, food, arts and crafts, and other cultural demonstrations of a particular ethnic group.  The Heritage Weekends celebrated the history, diversity, and collective talent of Louisville and its citizens, and now hold a unique place in the city's rich history.
