The City of Owensboro is proud to announce the return of Bluegrass on the Banks to downtown Owensboro. This free outdoor concert series showcases bluegrass music acts from across the region on the Ohio riverfront for the community to enjoy. “We are excited to bring the Bluegrass on the Banks series back to the riverfront this summer. It is another great way to showcase local talent while providing our city with outdoor entertainment throughout the week,” said Tim Ross, Public Events Director for the City of Owensboro.
