Tradition runs deep in Covington, co-existing alongside innovation and progress and a love of the arts. Covington enjoys a community of the arts, from painting to acting, sewing to singing. If you consider yourself an artist, Covington is the place for you and even if you’re not, this is a community of neighborhoods where friendships grow and last a lifetime.
The city offers a wide range of recreational venues and special events throughout the year, including such well received festivals as the Covington Three Rivers Art Festival that hosts up to 40,000 visitors each November and The Ozone Film Festival that draws filmmakers from all over the country. Economic development has joined cultural diversity, with Covington targeting the arts as a source of economic vitality. Several art galleries have made the city its home, as well as film and video producers using downtown Covington as a lively set.
Tourism is big business in Covington, and business is good here. While you are here relax in one of our local B&B’s, then enjoy tasty meals at locally owned and operated restaurants. When you’ve fueled up, visit the local Farmer’s Market and pick up home grown produce to take back with you to remind you what a great place Covington would be to raise your family.
