Downtown Georgetown Concert Series Celebrates 10 Years
Pop-up parties, Party in the Park and plenty of live music
GEORGETOWN, KY – MAY 1, 2019 – Georgetown lets the good times roll beginning May 25 with the kick-off of its annual Party in the Park event and continuing through Sept. 5 with pop-up parties on the square as part of the celebration for the 10th anniversary of its Downtown Georgetown Concert Series.
Free Saturday live music
Join the Party in the Park crowd for three concerts featuring popular regional musicians: the high-energy, soul stirring nine-member Honeychild group, May 25; the five-piece classic rock band, Rocksteady, with sounds of the seventies and eighties, June 29; and popular party cover band, the Usual Suspects, July 27.
Party in the Park is a free, community-wide event that takes place 7 to 10 p.m., rain or shine, at Royal Spring Park – famous as the birthplace of bourbon, where Baptist minister Elijah Craig first distilled spirits in Kentucky, or so the legend goes. Beer trucks and a variety of food trucks will be onsite.
Pop, pop, pop
The fun continues with the Downtown Georgetown Concert Series and two pop-up parties taking place at Courthouse Square on Main Street in Downtown Georgetown. The concerts begin at 7 p.m. and feature these bands: the dance, funk, jazz, pop, R&B/soul and rock group, Superfecta, on Friday, Aug. 30, and local fave, dance band Swing Street, on Thursday, Sept. 5.
Music with a side of sips, savories and sights
Besides turning Main Street into a stage for live music, Downtown Georgetown is full-on food-crazy with its abundance of culinary options. There are 14 different dining and drinking places in a six-block stroll dishing up all variety of gastronomical delights – from local artisan chews and brews and come-hither confections to old-timey diner delectables and linen-draped fine dining. That’s seven restaurants, four sweets spots and three watering holes, including one authentic Irish pub.
Downtown Georgetown also stays lively with over 20 locally-owned shops and boutiques, including two equestrian art themed galleries, plus the Georgetown/Scott County Museum and Scott County Arts & Cultural Center, giving visitors plenty to do before the bands tune up their instruments.
Sponsors of the Downtown Georgetown Concert Series include Celebrate Georgetown, Toyota Kentucky, Commonwealth Credit Union, M Hyatt Films, Georgetown Community Hospital and Georgetown Family Physicians Express Care.
