Now in its 10th year, the Louisville Free Public Library’s How-To Festival returns on Saturday, May 13 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Main Branch at 301 York St.

The free event offers workshops, activities, and demonstrations on how to do over 50 things — from ghost hunting to ribbon dance and knot tying.

The Louisville Urban Agriculture Coalition will have three gardening tents for people interested in how to grow veggies, raise backyard chickens and goats, and more. There are also kid-friendly sessions for younger Louisvillians at the Kids’ Tent — like how to write with a quill pen and ink + make tortillas.

Food trucks will be on site to fuel your learning and parking is free at Spalding University and System Parking lots.

Check out the How-To Festival schedule and plan your day.
