The Red, White & BOOM! Board of Directors supports the decisions announced today by the Columbus Arts Festival and the Columbus Jazz and Rib Festival of their respective cancellations. Every event has a unique planning timeframe and we are still within that timeframe to produce a 2021 Event. We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 Pandemic developments and vaccination rollout. We are working closely with City and County officials to determine the procedures and needed precautions to produce a safe event.
