Live on the Banks!

City of Owensboro announces return of live music series at Smothers Park



The City of Owensboro is proud to announce the return of Live on the Banks to downtown Owensboro. This free outdoor concert series showcases a variety of music groups from across the region to the Ohio riverfront for the community to enjoy every Saturday night from May 16 through September 26, 2015. 


In addition, Pickin In the Park will take place the last Saturday of each month.  This concept evolved during the 2014 season as local groups wanted to join the festivities with acoustic music throughout Smothers Park.  So, in 2015, Live on the Banks will feature some acoustic groups jamming at the other pavilions located around Smothers Park.  We invite any other local bands that want to play unplugged in the park to join us for the Pickin In the Park nights. 


Live on the Banks will take place at the River Overlook Stage in Smothers Park Saturdays from    

 7-9pm. A lineup of the bands performing each week can be

seen at
