Roots N Blues Festival Canceled This Year

The Roots N Blues Festival 2020 has been canceled because of COVID-19 safety concerns, according to a statement on the event website.

"The health and safety of our community has always been our highest priority," the statement reads. "We have reached the conclusion that it is in the best interest of our staff, volunteers, artists, crews, and patrons that we postpone the Roots N Blues Festival to 2021."

All passes purchased for the 2020 festival will be applied to the 2021 event, which will be held on Sept. 24-26, 2021, according to the statement. No action is needed for those who already purchased the passes.
