Every second weekend in May, Owensboro springs to life with the wonderful smells and sounds of the International Bar-B-Q Festival. Smoke from hickory-stoked fires blends with the aromas of sizzling chicken, bubbling burgoo and roasting mutton to complete the festival atmosphere.
This year's International Bar-B-Q Festival promises to be a fun-filled and exciting time for regulars and first-timers alike. The new Smothers Park area is open and adds a fun space to this downtown event. We've got plenty of events planned to make for a memorable Festival experience.
