On August 14th, the Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame & Museum hosts a concert event following the Owensboro Air Show. Presented by Owensboro Health, Downtown ROMP: Air Show After Party features Wolfpen Branch, Fireside Collective, Airshow, and Barefoot Movement.
Located on the riverfront in downtown Owensboro, the Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame & Museum is a prime location to view the air show. Gates to the outdoor stage area and lawn open at noon for ticket holders to take in the sights and sounds of the air show, which features a performance by The Blue Angels, the historic aerobatic flight squadron of the US Navy. Live music on the outdoor stage starts following the air show at approximately 4 pm.
