The City of Owensboro is excited to announce the return of Live on the Banks to Smothers Park in 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 15 to September 25, 2021.

“We are excited to be able to kick off another season of Live on the Banks,” said Tim Ross, Director of Public Events. “The series has continued to gain popularity over the years, making it a signature summer event in Owensboro.”


Organizers are asking visitors to please follow CDC and state social distancing guidelines. Face masks are encouraged and it is asked that attendees please keep at least six feet between others enjoying the music.


Live on the Banks will take place at the River Overlook Stage, as well as the Allen Street Gazebo, in Smothers Park Saturdays from 7-9pm. A lineup of the bands performing each week can be found at, and on the Live on the Banks Facebook page.
