Roots N Blues N BBQ Festival back in Columbia

Sep 19, 2013

 

The Roots N Blues N BBQ Festival will be returning to Columbia this weekend with some changes.

The festival location is one of the biggest changes- it will now be at Stephens Lake Park instead of downtown Columbia.

Richard King is the festival organizer for Roots N Blues N BBQ. He says the time was right to make change.
