We are a rain or shine event, so the show will go on. We work closely with the City of Columbia and Boone County Joint Communications to monitor the weather conditions for the safety of our guests. In the case of inclement weather, announcements from the stage and push notifications to the Roots N Blues Festival smartphone app will provide instructions. If weather interrupts or delays the festival, we will shuttle guests to Boone Hospital. Volunteers will direct guests to the shuttles.
