Live on the Lawn, a weekly concert series, is coming to the Owensboro Convention Center on Fridays during July and will feature live music, bars, and food.

The series includes:

  • July 10 – Drew Aud
  • July 17 – Josh Merritt
  • July 24 – Andy Brasher
  • July 31 – Cynthia Murray

The front lawn will be marked off with limited, dedicated 10’x10’ spaces for guests (each space to accommodate up to six guests) with 6-foot aisles in between to allow for proper social distancing. Spaces will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Admission to the Owensboro Convention Center front lawn begins at 5 p.m., and live music will be from 6-9 p.m.

“We have heard from so many people who are craving some form of live entertainment,” said General Manager Laura Alexander. “With social distancing in place and it being outdoors, we hope that people feel like this is a safe environment for them to come out and enjoy.”

No umbrellas, outside food and beverage, or coolers will be allowed with the exception that guests may bring in one unopened bottle of water. Guests can pre-order a Picnic Box for $10 per person, and it will include chicken-fried chicken breast, coleslaw, mashed potatoes and gravy, and a canned soda or bottled water.

Also available for purchase on-site will be hot dogs, hamburgers, chicken sandwiches, potato salad, and more.

For guests 21 and older, bars will also be available. There will be line queues with social distancing markers on the ground for entrance to concession and bar areas.

Access to restrooms will also be available. There will be a dedicated housekeeper doing a cleaning run at least once an hour.

Tickets for a limited, dedicated space on the lawn for each performance are $20 in advance or $25 on the day of the event. Tickets are available online at OwensboroTickets.com.
