StorageMart to Sponsor Roots N Blues Festival in Columbia, MO

You might expect a Blues festival to be in Memphis or New Orleans, but did you know one of the best blues music festivals in the nation is actually hosted every year in Columbia, Missouri? What began as a local attraction in 2007, the Roots N Blues N BBQ Festival has exponentially grown each year, attracting major artists like Buddy Guy, The Black Crowes & The Avett Brothers. 

With a similar humble beginning, StorageMart began with a single store in Columbia, MO. While we’ve grown to nearly 200 locations across 3 countries, we’ve never lost sight of giving back to the community that has given us so much. With this in mind, we are proud to announce that we are now officially the presenting sponsor of the Roots N Blues N BBQ Festival! 

The partnership was announced last night at an event in Columbia, MO with a quick word from our President, Cris Burnam. “The Roots N Blues N BBQ Festival has been a great part of COlumbia’s culture for years and we’re excited to join up with them. We look forward to enhacing the festival experience for the thousands in attendance and sharing with them a little more about StorageMart!”

An amazing artists lineup was announced as well, check it out below as well the first commercial promoting the event that will happen September 29th – October 1st. For more information and to get tickets, visit the Roots N Blues website and keep an eye out for more announcements from StorageMart!
