Owensboro, Kentucky, on the southern banks of the Ohio River, is the medical, retail and cultural hub of western Kentucky. From Owensboro’s signature barbecued mutton and burgoo (a stew made from mutton, other meats and vegetables) to its ties to the roots of bluegrass music, Owensboro is a culinary as well as cultural destination. The town’s International Bar-B-Q Festival typically attracts more than 30,000 people to the Ohio riverfront.
