festival policies

Broad St. Bridge and Coleman's Point - the grass west of Civic Center, along the river. Please note that Bridge St. Bridge closes to pedestrian traffic at 9 p.m. (time is subject to change).


Alcoholic beverages, portable gas or charcoal grills, temporary pools and generators are prohibited. Alcohol may be purchased and consumed at the Beer Gardens, on Long St., Spring St., Civic Center, Main St., and Washington Blvd.


Red, White & BOOM! is a great place for people but not for pets. Heat and crowded conditions can make BOOM! a stressful and potentially unhealthy place for dogs and other animal companions. We love pets and that’s why we ask that you please leave yours at home.


Coolers are permitted. Please have your cooler labeled with your name and cell phone number. Due to security concerns, unattended coolers may be confiscated by Columbus Police.
