Downtown Columbia Summerfest 2018


It's back!

Downtown Columbia Summerfest has a new name this year but it will still showcase the best in live music in downtown Columbia.

With less students in town, Columbia is a little quieter in the summer and the pace slows down for a few months. But on a few summer nights, people pack downtown and it gets loud!

Once again this year there will be a collection of live concerts at Rose Park. These outdoor events are outside of Rose Music Hall on Park Ave. The entire area is filled with music and concert goers, plus food and drinks for sale the entire evening. These outdoor concerts bring in an eclectic mix of national touring artists!

But as always, the high powered traditional 9th Street shows you’re accustom to seeing each year are still on the schedule. There are some great acts coming again this year. These 9th Street shows are located outside of The Blue Note.

Check out this summer's lineup!
