Fulton is a 4th-class city in Fulton County, Kentucky, in the United States. The population was 2,775 at the 2000 census. It was once known as the "Banana Capital of the World" because 70% of imported bananas to the U.S. used to be shipped there. U.S. Route 51 runs through the center of downtown. Fulton is part of the Union City-Hickman, TNKY Micropolitan Statistical Area.

In the first decade of the 20th century, the Southern Baptist clergyman Monroe E. Dodd began his long ministry at a church in Fulton. For many years, he was the pastor of First Baptist Church of Shreveport, Louisiana. A decade earlier, Ben M. Bogard, later the founder of the American Baptist Association in Texarkana, Texas, and long-time pastor of Antioch Missionary Baptist Church in Little Rock, Arkansas, had been a pastor in Fulton, where he was part of the Landmark Baptist movement.
