River of Music Party

The River of Music Party, held in Owensboro, Kentucky and sponsored by the International Bluegrass Music Museum, is considered a mega-celebration of all things bluegrass. The event usually features more than 30 artists, ranging from legends such as Marty Stuart, Del McCoury, and Byron Berline to newcomers, including the Grascals, Cadillac Sky, and the Farewell Drifters.

Taking place throughout Owensboro at three different venues (IBMM, Yellow Creek Park, and the RiverPark Center), the festival also includes the Bluegrass Masters Film Festival, a Bluegrass Legends Concert, new exhibit openings at the museum, Bluegrass Hall of Honor plaque unveilings, instrument workshops, and a Sunday open house at the museum.
