Owensboro – The Perfect Recipe

From Owensboro’s signature barbecued mutton and burgoo to our ties to the roots of bluegrass music, Owensboro is the culinary and cultural hub of western Kentucky.

Owensboro hosts more than 20 annual festivals, including the world-famous International Bar-B-Q Festival, ROMP: Bluegrass Roots & Branches Festival, Big O Music Fest and the Western Kentucky Botanical Garden Daylily Festival.

Along with our fun festivals, there are unique attractions and special events in Owensboro nearly every week of the year.
