Completed Tasks

2020 Q3

  • Superintendent Molly Johnson was forced to reduce the City’s special event offerings due to COVID-19. However, once bars and restaurants opened she transitioned the concert/block party format to “Street Beats” at the downtown gazebo. Quality local talent provided entertainment at the downtown gazebo on Friday and Saturday nights from the first week of July to the first week of September. This program was coordinated with the Planning Department’s outdoor summer dining program.
  • Staff is still working to provide the highly successful Holiday Market in December most likely outdoors at Paducah Middle School.

2020 Q4

  • Special Events Superintendent Molly Johnson and team offered “Street Beats” at the downtown gazebo this summer, providing ambiance for the downtown during Covid. The Street Beats program was highly successful and plans to bring this back in the ’21 spring and summer season.
