Eastern Kentucky University has something going on almost every weekend, and many events are open to the public. The theater department puts on plays and musicals, the music department has concerts, and there are to "Dance Theatre" shows every year. (These are usually a lot of fun. There are more talented performers at EKU than you'd think.)
The school also hosts an occasional celebrity performace. Past guests include Frank Warren (of PostSecret) and Daniel Tosh.
You can find a schedule of campus events (and prices and location information) on the school's website. Events are typically cheap.

Richmond's new Cinemark theater is a definite improvement over the last one at the old mall. The seating is comfortable, the sound is clear, and service is friendly. The theater hosts midnight release viewings frequently.

This is a more generic Kentucky Tourist acitivity, but it is enjoyable enough. You can ride around the park in a horse and carriage drawn by huge draft horses, you can walk through the barns visiting the different horses, they put on a daily show called the Parade of Breeds including those cute tiny miniature horses. The horse museum is there and they host different special events throughout the year such as the Egyptian Event which is a week long Egyptian Arabian horse show.
There's a gift shop and a cafeteria-like place for food.
Another interesting fact: One of the 9 equine actors that played Seabiscuit in the movie has made the horse park it's permanant home.
Please refer to their website for their current admission fee's and schedules.

Beautiful Kentucky rolling hills and acres of green lush fields and vinyard! A relatively new vineyard opened by a local family by the name of Land. Delicious wines... My favorite being the Maggie Adams blush named after a lady that had lived on the farm at one time I believe. Their Vignole & Blackberry wines are also worth trying. The Concord is sweet and just like spiked GRAPE juice if that's what you're looking for. But so far, I haven't tried anything bad.
They DID have a nice restaurant and gift shop but there was a recent fire (2009) and there are plans to rebuild. Acres of Land is a straight shot off of I-75 out in the country of Madison County. It's a curvy road (about 3 miles off the beaten path). They offer scheduled tours and live music events. Check their schedule online!

The Kentucky River meanders through and along the borders of Madison County. A beautiful sight to behold, it provides the water for Richmond residents as well as a place to play, get away or just sit and listen while watching nature in all it?s splendor. I enjoy the drive out (and it is quite a drive) as much as the river itself. Following this scenic route reminds me that the journey is half the fun.

An elegant and tasty treat, Bennett House celebrates seven years of tea. Fare changes from one tea to the next, but it is always delicious, inviting and fun. Staples are the tarts (small, tasty quiches) and a wonderful assortment of teas prepared for each person by the tea master.
Tea is the first Saturday of each month at 11am, 1pm and 3pm(excepting January and July). Reservations are required, as is a major credit card.
Children are welcome, but remember that it is a formal tea. Rita loves babies** and they are more than willing to accomodate, provided the little ones are on their best behavior.
**As a side note, Our little Liddy is now "officially" the youngest attendee of a Bennett House tea :)

With over 100 buildings on the National Register of Historic Places and three National Register Historic Districts, downtown Richmond is considered one of the state's finest restored 19th century commercial districts. Visit retail and antique stores, restaurants and historic buildings in the downtown area. Walking tour available. Richmond is a National Main Street Community and a graduate of the Kentucky Main Street program.
Some of the better restaurants include Woody's (fine dining), Madison Gardens (more of an Italian pub if that makes sense), the Buddha (bar & sandwiches), Taylor's Pool Hall (burgers and fries), Silver Diner (home cooked food and excellent burgers) and Parke Pastries Bistro. So there's a little something for everyone.
There are also a couple of good shops. Try Jett and Hall for men's suits, Tassel and Toad for eclectic gifts, and the Chestnut Tree Gallery for art.
