COVID-19 Claims Keokuk’s “Rollin’ On The River” Blues Festival
The "Rollin’ on the River" Committee has decided to cancel their Blues festival slated for August 14 & 15, 2020 in Keokuk, Iowa due to the Coronavirus crisis.
According to a news release from festival organizers Randy & Irene Fish, "The economic paralysis brought upon by Covid-19 has placed a significant downward pressure on our fundraising ability this year. Added to that challenge is the unknown trajectory of the Coronavirus throughout the summer and our reticence to potentially put our volunteers and fans in jeopardy."
It is hoped that this decision will place the festival, in its 32nd year, in a much better position to present a very successful "Rollin' On The River" Blues Festival the 3rd weekend in August, 2021.
