Founded in 1989 to promote the dairy show, and at the time featuring just one advertisement, ShelbyKY Tourism has grown to become the marketing powerhouse for Shelby County, KY. ShelbyKY helps to bring in over $65,000,000 a year in direct tourism expenditures into the county through advertising, marketing, travel shows, and a multitude of other ways to market our great travel destination. We are funded by matching funds from the state, accomodation transient fees, and restaurant taxes in Simpsonville and Shelbyville. The commission is governered by a seven person board of directors as per Kentucky Revised Statues for all tourism Commissions. Day to day operations are oversaw by an executive director and staff.
