Select Traveler, a national publication, recommends Owensboro as a city for music along with Macon, Georgia, Cleveland and Seattle. The magazine specializes in identifying cities for group travel planners to book their next group tour.

Between the Bluegrass Hall of Fame and Museum and Friday After 5, I’m not surprised that Owensboro has been featured as a music city. Well over 30,000 people came to Owensboro for ROMP and Friday After 5 attracts thousands over its season,” said Dave Kirk, Destination Management Visit Owensboro.

The magazine gives a brief history of Owensboro’s ties to bluegrass music and talks about the rebranding and opening of the Bluegrass Hall of Fame and Museum in October.

“The timing of this article couldn’t be better as we work towards the opening of the Bluegrass Hall of Fame and Museum.  We look forward to working with group travel planners to put on an incredible show on Saturdays for their customers,” said Chris Joslin, Executive Director Bluegrass Hall of Fame and Museum.

“This national magazine featuring Owensboro is huge for tourism.  Group travel is a great market for us to be in especially with bus tours,” added Kirk.

When it comes to Friday After 5, the magazine talks about how groups can enjoy music every Friday night during its season with six stages lining the Ohio River showcasing free live music.

“We’ve had several groups already come through Friday After 5 and they are amazed that we provide this kind of entertainment at no cost to the consumer. This publication will only add to that number of visitors,” said Teresa Thomas, Executive Director of Friday After 5.
