Downing Museum at Baker Arboretum

Arts & Entertainment in Bowling Green, Ky

While the curtains may be currently closed, one thing's for sure, when we get the green light for full audiences again, this town will be hopping again with entertainment options! In the meantime, check out the Public Theatre of Kentucky's podcast, Backstage Banter, on Anchor or watch Orchestra Kentucky's Monday Musicians video profiles on Facebook to keep the spotlights shining!

 Being less than an hour north of Music City, USA, Bowling Green audiences have long been a testing ground for emerging Nashville artists while supporting the trailblazing talents of local musicians and ensembles. From performing arts centers to independent venues to restaurants regularly offering live music, we hope you'll check out some live music when the time is right.

Visual and performing arts are also readily available with multiple galleries around town, two theatre troupes, The Downing Museum, and a bustling WKU Department of Theatre and Dance performance schedule. Families visiting BG are entertained by professional minor league baseball, escape games and historic tours, too!
