Get down for a great cause at the 15th annual Mayhem Fest in downtown Bowling Green. Local alternative rock and WKU campus station Revolution 91.7’s FREE annual music festival will feature headliners J. Roddy Walston & The Business, the southern rockers from Virginia. Other featured artists include local favorites The Josephines, Solar Disco Fire and Internet Boyfriend.
The tunes commence at 6 p.m. and end at 11:30 p.m., so bring your dancing shoes!
Gates will open for Mayhem 2018 at 5 p.m. at the SoKy Marketplace Pavilion, so it will be a rain or shine event! Be sure to check out all the on-site vendors; proceeds will benefit Rainhill Equine Facility, a Bowling Green-based nonprofit charity dedicated to bettering the lives of blind and disabled horses.
If outdoor music isn’t your speed, be sure to get your tickets for The Marshall Tucker Band around the corner at our very own Southern Kentucky Performing Arts Center. The show starts at 7:30 p.m. and tickets range from $32 to $67.

Start your engines for the National Corvette Museum's seasonal on-site event! The 2019 Corvette Stingray, ZR1 was unveiled Thursday, and you can see the restored 1962 Corvette that was damaged in the sinkhole. The Corvette Racing Team is back again with Doug Fehan, Paul Pearson and his seventh generation infotainment/navigation seminar.
The Ladies' Garage will also be returning this year with an expanded Garage Party featuring the women of GM where you may re-educate yourself on maintenance, engineering, and high-performance driving. Leave the guys at the door; this is exclusive for our speed loving ladies only!
Take a cruise on the guided road tours, try your luck in a raffle or win exclusive memorabilia at the live benefit auction. The on-site tech and mechanics team will be there to answer any questions you might have during your experience.
Onsite registration is available today and Saturday.
And don’t let the big crowds deceive you; the museum is still open for touring. Don’t miss your chance to see just as many Corvettes in the parking lot as there are inside! A complete schedule of events is available on the Museum's website.
