About Us

Friday After 5 is a summer-long series of free outdoor concerts held every Friday on the stunningly beautiful Owensboro, Kentucky riverfront. Friday After 5 began in 1996 with four concerts and grew into a 16-week signature festival for the entire tri-state area hosting more than 50,000 visitors each season on the riverfront every Friday After 5. It’s Where the Weekend Begins!

Fun. Friends. Free. All events are free thanks to our sponsors.

ReunionPreUnions: Most high school reunions are on Saturday. That’s why we host all of your classmates on Friday and call it a ”PreUnion“. We know the classes don’t have any money so we provide everything for free including a “pre-registration” table and chairs, a great band and a beautiful venue overlooking the river surrounded by great music on a warm summer night. We’ll even help promote your “PreUnion“in our marketing. It’s free. Contact us:

Friday After 5 was again named one of the “Top Ten Summer Festivals” in Kentucky and just won the prestigious Reader’s Choice Platinum Award for “Best Community Event” this year. The festival includes live bands, family events, food and entertainment and our “Toast to the Sunset” at each Friday After 5.

Hours: 5pm until 10pm

Location: From RiverPark Center through Smothers Park downtown on the Owensboro Riverfront on the Ohio River.

Dress: Please.
