Where the Weekend Begins!
Friday After 5 is the award-winning, summer-long series of free outdoor concerts held every Friday on the eight block, stunningly beautiful Owensboro, Kentucky riverfront. The festival includes live bands, family events, food trucks and entertainment. Our signature “Toast to the Sunset” takes place right on the riverfront at every Friday After 5. There are five venues of entertainment plus a fun, kid-friendly street fair and costume characters. Friday After 5 has been named a “Top Ten Summer Festival” in Kentucky and has won the prestigious Messenger-Inquirer Reader’s Choice Platinum Award for “Best Community Event” for five consecutive years.
