Mark Calitri Reports: Blue Angels air show, international hydroplane racing and 118 additional events-year long- create a huge economic impact!


“Events are vital to the Owensboro tourism infrastructure,” Mark Calitri, president of the Owensboro-Daviess County Convention & Visitors Bureau, said last week.

“Tim Ross and his department go above and beyond in not only ensuring Owensboro’s events are sustainable, but also adding new events that are attractive for both a local and visiting audience,” he said. “They serve as both an amenity and a reason to make the trip to Owensboro.”

Ross said more than 80 events have been canceled this year because of the pandemic and its restrictions on crowd sizes.
