Live on the Banks! Presented by Aleris

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 20 through September 30, 2017. The City is excited to announce that this year’s Live on the Banks series will be brought to you by Aleris, our presenting sponsor.  “Aleris is a great organization in our community and I am excited that they have decided to partner with us to continue to provide great entertainment on Saturday nights along the riverfront downtown for the Live on the Banks series,” said Tim Ross, Director of Public Events. 


Continuing in 2017 is the second location at the Allen Street Gazebo in Smothers Park. Along with the main stage, additional artists will play at the Allen Street Gazebo every Saturday night. The gazebo will also be home to Pickin’ in the Park on May 20 and September 30. We invite any 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, as well as the Allen Street Gazebo, in Smothers Park on Saturdays from 7-9pm. A lineup of the bands performing each week can be found at www.liveonthebanks.com.
