The Kentuck Festival of the Arts is an annual juried art show and festival held at Kentuck Park in Northport. The first festival was held in 1971. The event, organized by the Kentuck Association which also operates a year-round Kentuck Arts Center, is known for the availability of works by numerous well-regarded folk or outsider artists alongside high-quality crafts. Currently the event attracts about 300 artists and 30,000 visitors.

The name "Kentuck" was taken from the name of the first settlement in the area, itself derived from a native work meaning "canebrake".
