Free Bluegrass concert, canceled because of rain, rescheduled Monday on Newport-Bellevue riverfront


The Bluegrass music concert that was scheduled to be held on June 17 but was canceled because of rain has been rescheduled for Monday, July 8, at Taylor Creek Park, the riverfront park on the Ohio River that straddles the boundary between the cities of Bellevue and Newport.

The free concert – known as “Kentucky Bluegrass on the Ohio River” – will feature Steve Bonafel & One Iota on July 8 from 7-9 p.m.

The two other Bluegrass concerts in this series are:

 July 15: Ma Crow & Company

 August 12: Steve Bonafel & One Iota.

The concerts will showcase Taylor Creek Park — the park along Riverfront Commons located between Joe’s Crab Shack and The Chart House on Riverboat Row — which was completed two years ago. Presenting sponsors of the concert series are WesBanco, VS Engineering, and Southbank Partners.

People attending the concert are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and blankets to the venue.

Southbank Partners, a community and economic development organization, promotes and manages economic development and infrastructure improvement projects in the Northern Kentucky’s six Ohio River cities – Bellevue, Covington, Dayton, Fort Thomas, Ludlow, and Newport.

Riverfront Commons — an 11.5-mile uninterrupted walking, running, and biking trail that links these cities — is the signature project of Southbank Partners.
