We’ve got great music all weekend long! Check out some of the top entertainment this weekend and find something fun whether you want to jam out into the night or enjoy dinner and a show with friends!


KY Fried Pickin’

It’s finger pickin’ fun all weekend at the Holiday Inn Owensboro Riverfront! The Kentucky Fried Pickin’ Bluegrass Jam Festival is back Thursday, April 29 to Saturday, May 1. This is a free event full of good music, good food, and good fun. All-night jam sessions will be taking place inside the lobby, hotel rooms, and hallways, while more music will be going on at the outdoor stage. Even if you’re not a musician coming to play, grab your friends and a couple lawn chairs, socially distance, and enjoy the music! The in-hotel restaurant, Burger Theory, will be serving “Kentucky Fried Pickin’ Wings” and a “Big Mon Burger” on two separate nights in addition to their delicious menu. “Big Mon” is a tribute to a nickname given to Bill Monroe, the Father of Bluegrass.
