Spring Weekend Events

Mini Golf on Broadway
Date: March 26-28
Time: 8am-5pm
Location: The Lexington Opera House
Since the beginning in 1886, countless notable performers have graced the stage at the historic Lexington Opera House. From George M. Cohan to Harry Houdini,  from Anna Pavlova to Sarah Bernhardt and more recently from Steve Martin to Cathy Rigby and Johnathan Groff, we proudly boast their acclaimed performances on our stage! Now, it’s your turn to play the Opera House. While we wait for that time when we can return for a staged performance, we invite you to take a sneak peek behind the curtain, and enjoy a mini-golf course inspired by Broadway!  Schedule a Tee Time in advance and check in at the Short Street entrance.  Pick up your club, ball and scorecard and be escorted backstage. You’ll tee off on a nine-holes of socially distanced, Broadway themed mini golf, including such titles as THE MUSIC MAN, CINDERELLA, KINKY BOOTS and HAMILTON! Along the way, our backstage pros will share information and stories from behind the scenes at Lexington Opera House.

Water Week

Water, water, everywhere – though oftentimes unseen! Lexington is celebrating Water Week this spring. Kentucky has over 90,000 miles of surface rivers and streams. Natural, underground waterways are also present in much of the state, including in Central Kentucky. Join us in celebrating the importance of water and our role in protecting it. It’s a week of virtual and self-guided activities for all ages, abilities and interests.
