About Us

Established in 1998, Kentucky Monthly celebrates the people, places, events and culture of the Commonwealth. By highlighting the best our state has to offer, we unite Kentuckians everywhere and create a sense of pride and community. We publish 10 issues per year, covering a wide variety of topics including travel, history, home, human interest, entertainment, outdoors, opinions, education, health, the arts, science and more.    

Vested Interest Publications, the parent company of Kentucky Monthly, was incorporated in Frankfort, Kentucky in 1998. In addition to the flagship magazine and  its smartphone application Travel Kentucky, VIP periodically produces books and special publications. VIP books include Sacred Places of Kentucky, Kentucky’s Twelve Days of Christmas, Kentucky: A to Z and Seasoned Cooking of Kentucky.
