FRIDAY AFTER 5 CELEBRATES ITS 27TH SEASON IN OWENSBORO
Friday After 5 announced its upcoming summer lineup full of big names, new faces, and many surprises. As thousands ascend to Downtown Owensboro, Kroger is back with their popular street fair, Darrel and Michael Waltrip will make an appearance during Kentucky Motorsports Week, and popular musical acts like Fat Box, Velvet Bombers, Juice Box Heroes, and Caribou return. Gearheads will love the RiverCity Bike Show, the JEEPS and JAMZ Expo, and the Bluegrass Legends Car, Truck, and Motorcycle Show. There truly is something for everyone at the Owensboro Riverfront!
"In a new, enhanced way, Visit Owensboro is collaborating with FA5 with our major groups in town. We wanted to create a visitor experience that's entertaining and unique, that can be our differentiator from other communities.", Mark Calitri, President of Visit Owensboro shared this morning.
WBKR is back as the media partner for the season and will once again bring Friday Night Fights to the FA5 stage on June 30th, 2023. It's your chance to win $1,000 and close out the entertainment on the Ruoff Party Stage on September 1st, 2023. Glenn's Gospel will bring Halleluiah Fridays to the Owensboro Riverfront and First Fridays makes a return to the backyard stage of the Bluegrass Museum. And, come hungry for the delicious food trucks that will line the riverfront. The excitement has been building for brand-new events and an exciting lineup of performers. You won't want to miss the incredible season that's almost upon us! It's Where the Weekend Begins.
"We're thrilled at the outpouring of support this season for Friday After 5 by our community and their input of some fun ideas for the year. Our new sponsor, Best Insurance by Elizabeth, has even answered the call of our community by helping us provide a dance floor for our Jagoe Homes Main Stage at the Holiday inn Riverfront. It's going to be incredible fun for The Art of Music, Season 27!", Francine Marseille, Executive Director of Friday After 5, shared with us.
