Between 5 and 8 p.m. on the first Friday of each month from August through December, walk, shop, and dine your way across downtown Paducah with sidewalk sales, dining and drink specials, and live entertainment during the First Friday Happy Hour in Downtown Paducah. This is to celebration Paducah's Entertainment Destination Center (EDC)
What is an EDC?
In June, the Kentucky Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control approved Paducah’s EDC. The State-issued license allows customers to take to-go alcoholic drinks in designated cups from participating businesses. The customers can then stroll our historic streets, browse the windows of local boutiques, enjoy the riverfront, and partake in outdoor events. Paducah Bank sponsors Paducah’s Entertainment Destination Center with the Paducah Bank logo proudly displayed on the to-go cups.
Currently, there are 17 participating bars and restaurants in the EDC. The EDC hours are daily from 6 a.m. until midnight. Signs have been installed in downtown Paducah to assist patrons in locating the EDC boundary since alcoholic beverages are allowed only on public property within the district.
