Roots N Blues N BBQ Festival Move Awaits Council Approval
COLUMBIA - Thumper Entertainment is excited for its plan move to one of Columbia's most popular parks.
A press release from Thumper Entertainment announced Thursday that the Boone County National Bank Roots N Blues N BBQ Festival will possibly be taking place at Stephens Lake Park in 2013. Organizers said the area will offer fans a better musical experience.
Benefits will include a larger and greener space for fans to spread out, improved accessibility for people of all ages, shorter lines and opportunities for more BBQ vendors.
BCNB officials stated this will not only reduce the use of city resources, but the move will allow local restaurants and retailers to become more involved.
The 2013 festival dates are set for September 20 through the 22.
The move is awaiting council approval.
