We all know why we couldn't see live music or shows, or gather in large groups over the past year. But 2021 is starting to show a light at the end of the tunnel. More and more of our community is able to be vaccinated, and so as they say...'The show will go on'. 

Get ready to celebrate every Friday in Owensboro with live music, in a big way. To celebrate the 25th anniversary, you will be entertained with a full mile of music, every Friday, beginning May 21, 2021. The Holiday Inn Owensboro Riverfront has added their outdoor stage to the fun, making Friday After 5 an official 'Mile of Music'.

Everytime I cross that blue bridge, I am amazed by the growth of Owensboro. The riverfront is great for families, and is a natural gathering spot for entertainment. You're probably wondering how much these amazing nights of music cost - How about FREE! You can find free parking around downtown, or pay a small fee to park in one of the public garages.
