Peak Season: 

With its mild climate, Kentucky has visitors year round, although summer (May to September) is the peak season.
Spring means the Kentucky Derby, so budget-conscious travellers will have a hard time finding cheap Kentucky flights and accommodations. The race is held the first Saturday in May, and there are two weeks of festivals and entertainment before the race.

Fall is also popular, particularly in the Kentucky Highlands during the Fall Festivals.

Off Season:

Spring is a bit slower in Kentucky, as long as you stay away from Louisville. Keep in mind, though, that Churchill Downs is open other times of the year when it is not nearly as crowded.
