I’m coming from out of town – how do I get there, what should I put in my GPS?
The Waterfront Development Corporation folks have exact GPS coordinates and directions from every, well, direction.
Can I watch the concert from the bridge?
Absolutely! It’s a great place to listen and has a beautiful view. Be sure to tag any of your photos on social media #wfpk and #waterfrontwednesday (or whatever you want the hashtag to be -R)
What about parking? Is it free? Can I ride my bike? (should we put that question on its own? -R) Will the construction for the bridges ever be done?
We strongly suggest parking West of I-65 in the Witherspoon, Humana and surface lots. Increased bicycle parking will be offered in the event area, courtesy of Parkside Bikes. VIEW A MAP OF PARKING OPTIONS HERE.
Due to construction caused by the KY/IN Bridges Project, some streets immediately surrounding the event may be inaccessible. The construction will definitely be over some day.

Absolutely! Waterfront Wednesday is an all-ages event.
Can I bring my dog/ferret/parrot?
No pets allowed, sorry. Please leave the furry and feathered kids at home.

Outside alcohol is prohibited. No coolers, no glass, or pets allowed in the event area of the Big Four Lawn and the adjacent park areas.
Is there food and/or beer and/or alcohol and/or nonalcoholic drinks at Waterfront Wednesday?
I’m interested in being a vendor at Waterfront Wednesday. Where do I find more information?

Can I bring my own food?
As long as you don’t bring it in the aforementioned and prohibited glass or coolers, sure thing.
Can I bring my own beer?
I see what you did there. Still nope.
I see rain/wind/tornadoes from Oz predicted in the weather report. Is there still a concert?
Waterfront Wednesday is a rain or shine event, and we’ve typically had beautiful weather over the years! But occasionally especially heavy rain or lightening has caused us to run on a delayed schedule, and in the event of a particularly bad storm, cancel. The safety of our attendees as well as our bands and workers always takes priority, and in the case of inclement weather, keep an eye on our Facebook page.
I lost my keys/sunglasses/credit card/license/sweater/water bottle/you get the idea/ at Waterfront Wednesday, help!
