With a heavy heart the Paola Roots Festival Committee has postponed the 31st Annual Paola Roots Festival. The Paola Roots Festival (including the KCBS East Central State BBQ Championship) planned for August 28 & 29 in the Paola Park Square this summer will be postponed until August 27 & 28, 2021 due to the Coronavirus outbreak. Due to the uncertainty and concerns with COVID-19 the annual event will not be held this summer in order to protect the health of everyone involved, the musicians, BBQ teams, technical staff, festival volunteers and of course our family of Roots Festival attendees. We wish you all safety and good health during these times. We’ll look forward to gathering again for the Festival in 2021.

Bring your Lawn Chair. Coolers are allowed for food & drink, including alcohol. No glass please. Must be 21 to consume alcohol.

What's not allowed: No weapons, No pets, No bicycles, No skateboards.
