On November 21, 2013, UNESCO designated Paducah the world’s seventh City of Crafts and Folk Art.

Paducah plays an important role in the connectivity of cultures through creativity especially through quilting. Known as Quilt City USA®, Paducah, Kentucky is a mecca for quilters and fiber artists. A long-lasting tradition in the fine craft of quiltmaking has been recognized worldwide especially through AQS QuiltWeek® and the National Quilt Museum of the United States over the past thirty years.

The city is richly populated with artists, museums, galleries, craft stores and venues for hands-on workshops. The Paducah School of Art & Design is a key center for training in crafts and folk art.

A variety of creative elements contribute to Paducah’s artistic landscape. Cultural attractions and events dedicated to visual, performing and culinary arts enhance the city’s international appeal. Paducah promotes creativity and diverse artforms through exhibitions and festivals including QuiltWeek, the LowerTown Art & Music Festival and the River’s Edge International Film Festival.
