Waterfront Wednesdays in Louisville, Kentucky
The City of Louisville, Kentucky is great for many reasons, but one that sticks out to many people is the abundance of free concert series. Waterfront Wednesday is presented by 91.9 WFPK and Waterfront Development Corporation with support from Friends of the Waterfront and sponsors. On several Wednesday evenings in the summer, these organizations work together to present free concerts on the Harbor Lawn at Waterfront Park. The concert series, which is currently in its tenth year, features both national and local artists.
The show begins at 5pm on Wednesdays and is free to the public. Also available during the concert is a cash bar and great upscale festival food. Concertgoers are not allowed to bring their own food, alcohol, pets, or coolers inside the event area, but lawn chairs and blankets are encouraged. For kids, there’s a children’s play area adjacent to the Harbor Lawn. Visitors can also travel to the concert by boat, though the docks are on a first come, first served basis.
The most recent Waterfront Wednesday featured Nicole Atkins, Abigail Washburn, and Scars On 45. Nicole Atkins was recently featured by Time Magazine and named one of the “Ten Acts That Rocked South by Southwest.” Abigail Washburn is a singing, songwriting, banjo-playing artist who pairs folk music with far-flung sounds to create music unlike anything anybody’s heard before. Last but not least, Scars On 45 got its start when a co-founder broke his foot and picked up a guitar during his recovery. The band is now known to make music that combines gentle melodic intensity with co-ed vocals.
Everyone has a great time going to Waterfront Wednesdays. Whether you’ve heard of the bands or its new music to your ears, there’s nothing like going from a hard day’s work to relaxing with friends in a beautiful park. Add food, beverages, and music and you’re guaranteed to have a fantastic night of excitement and fun.
