Lake Malone Dock Trot 2020
Let’s do the DOCK TROT! The Muhlenberg County Tourism Commission is excited to bring back this FREE, family friendly event that features live entertainment on beautiful Lake Malone! The event is slated for Saturday, September 19th and will feature six (6) free concerts performed along the banks of the lake. The event will begin at 3:00 pm and finish with a grand finale firework display at 7:30 pm at the beach at Lake Malone State Park.
To enjoy the event, launch a watercraft and embark on a free musical journey. Cruise along the Dock Trot route, navigating the waters from dock to dock, to discover six locations where live concerts will be being performed. Anchor for a bit and enjoy the music, then motor on over to the next Dock Trot Stop to hear another talented group of musicians.
The 4+ hour event will feature a total of 6 bands, with 3 bands playing from 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm and 3 bands playing from 5:00 pm – 7:15 pm. This will give boaters plenty of time to take in all 6 bands if desired. Dock Trotters will be entertained with genres spanning from country to gospel and rock-n-roll to Bluegrass. The Dock Trot can be navigated from any direction and in any order, but to assist with the experience, each Dock Trot Stop has been color coded and a map will be developed outlining the concert destinations.

White Dock Trot Stop: “Higher Praise Quartet” with Cole Scott & Jackson Miller
