In Partnership with the Southern Weekend

Support city parks with some after work fun on the riverfront

If you don’t already have plans on Friday night, we might have something for you.

Are you ready for some Friday night fun after work? Have fun supporting Evansville neighborhood parks at Evansville’s Evening on the River. It’s from 5 to 9 p.m. on June 8.

Enjoy the scenery as you stroll up and down the street with an adult beverage. In addition to that, hear live, local bands, enjoy free tastings from local restaurants and more!

Plus, the event is for a good cause because the proceeds go to Evansville’s Neighborhood Parks Foundation and the Keep Evansville Beautiful nonprofit program.
