LowerTown Arts & Music Festival This Friday and Saturday

LOWERTOWN arts festPADUCAH, Ky. (5/15/14) — The 2014 LowerTown Arts & Music Festival will be this Friday and Saturday.

The festival hours are 3-10 p.m., May 16, and 10 a.m.-10:30 p.m., May 17. Admission is free.

In 2013, the event brought approximately 16,000 visitors to the LowerTown neighborhood in Paducah. The event is held on Madison between 5th and 8th Streets and on 6th and 7th Streets between Harrison and Monroe Streets. Those who live in the festival area are asked to move their cars from the streets beginning Thursday at 12 p.m. through Sunday evening.

Attendees will enjoy a variety of musical entertainment organized by the Paducah Symphony Orchestra, food vendors participating in the Taste of Paducah, children’s activities, dozens of juried artists, and Art Cars in which artists use cars as canvases.

Mayor Gayle Kaler thanks the organizers and the hundreds of volunteers who work each year at the festival. Mayor Kaler says, “It takes people who are really stakeholders to make a festival successful. The festival is another layer of fun and culture we have in Paducah.” The festival was selected as one of the Kentucky Travel Industry Association’s Top 10 Festivals & Events for Spring 2014. Criteria for selection include the popularity of the event, its impact on the local tourism economy as well as cultural and historical significance.

The LowerTown Arts & Music Festival is produced and coordinated by the LowerTown Neighborhood Association. Michael and Victoria Terra are the event co-directors. The City of Paducah is one of the sponsors of the event providing a $15,000 cash donation in addition to in-kind services.

As a reminder, pets are allowed at city-sponsored community events such as the LowerTown Arts & Music Festival; however, for the public’s safety, the City’s dog ordinance lists three requirements.

The dog must be:

  • Licensed by McCracken County Animal Control or by any other state or county;

  • Restrained by a leash or other lead that is no longer than three feet; and

  • Restrained by a muzzle.
