Kentucky State Tug-of-War Championship

Fordsville (Ohio County) Tug-of-War Championship Contest

Kentucky State Tug-of-War Championship: Fordsville (Ohio County) Tug-of-War Championship Contest

Adopted on July 13, 1984.

Amended on July 13, 1990.

The community's annual festival "Fordsville Days" is held the third weekend in September and features carnival rides, merchant booths, beauty Pageants, car, motorcycle and tractor shows. In the past (hopefully to return again) the festivities included a tug-o-war championship. The teams were so good that in 1990 the Kentucky General Assembly named Fordsville the site of the official State tug-o-war championship. This year's festival will be held September 18-20 2014. Visit the Fordsville Days website.
