On Friday, October 3rd and Saturday October 4th, the Roots ‘N Blues BBQ Festival will be making its return to Columbia. There will be food (BBQ contest, of course), and live music lining the concert venues of downtown Columbia.
What’s the best part? It’s free to the public!
The extensive lineup of artists and over 22 food vendors will line the Columbia District for 2 days of nothing but BBQ and roots-n-blues style music. $15,000 of cash prizes are awarded to BBQ festival winners. Free shuttle services are provided for the Festival as well.
The Roots ‘N Blues Festival website has all the information you’ll need about the details of the festival – music lineup, food, transportation to the festival, times, and even how to purchase the “Whole Hog Package”. It’s definitely worth checking out.
Hours of the Festival:
Friday, Oct. 3 from 5p.m. to 10p.m.
Saturday, Oct. 4 from 11 a.m. to 11p.m.
If you’re a student (like me) and want to find out which of your friends are going – or want to see pictures and videos about the event, be sure to join the Facebook group.
So bring your friends, camera, and walking shoes and get ready to have an awesome time at this year’s festival. I know I’ll be there!
