Produced by the Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame & Museum, ROMP Festival is scheduled for September 15-18th at Yellow Creek Park in Owensboro, Kentucky. 2021 marks the 18th year for the event, and festival organizers are moving ROMP from June to September as the vaccine rollout reaches more people, and active cases continue to trend downward.
ROMP Festival organizers make this decision considering State, CDC, and local guidelines, along with input from the Regional Health Director, and will continue to seek guidance making any modifications necessary to ensure the health and safety of attendees, artists, volunteers, vendors, and staff.
The executive director of the Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame & Museum, Chris Joslin, commented, “The health and safety of everyone who engages with ROMP Festival is our top priority. Based on input from public health officials, we feel confident moving forward with a fall date incorporating several logistics and operational changes to maximize the experience while minimizing the risk.”
Ticket buyers who chose to roll over their 2020 purchase to 2021 need not take any action because previous ticket purchases apply to this year’s festival. Artist lineup and ticket information will be announced soon.
