The Duncan Hines Festival is a free community event that celebrates the life and career of Bowling Green native Duncan Hines. In its 20th year, the Duncan Hines Festival has partnered with Chaney's Dairy Barn for a family fun event. The festival will include the Adventures in Good Baking Contest, Uncle Duncan's Duck Derby, a brownie eating contest, a silent auction and local arts & crafts vendor. This year’s festival will be held from 4:00 pm-8:00 pm and will be followed by Chaney’s Dairy Barn “Ice Cream & A Moovie”. The Festival is very well known and attendance continues to grow. In 2015, the proceeds generated totaled more than $16,000 and were distributed to nonprofits in the south central Kentucky area with a focus on those assisting women and children.
