With great regret and after much discussion, the Downtown Association of Yakima announces that the Roots & Vines Festival has been postponed for another year due to the COVID-19 situation. With the degree of uncertainty and the risk factor still extremely high, and the restrictions still too limiting, it is not possible for us to host a successful event without putting the public, our staff, and our volunteers in harm’s way. In addition, the preparation that is necessary for this type of event was just not possible with the constant uncertainty and shifting of the situation. We hope you understand. We will miss putting on the event, and miss seeing all of you on Front Street, but here is to a full return of Roots & Vines in the near future! And hoping to see you at our other events later this year!
Welcome summer to the Yakima Valley at Roots & Vines Festival. Every third Saturday in May we invite you to shake off the dust and celebrate with us as we feature nationally acclaimed Bluegrass and Americana bands, Yakima Valley’s famous Craft Beverages, and the finest local food vendors. Enjoy 6 consecutive hours of live music while soaking up the ambiance of Historic North Front Street in the heart of Downtown Yakima.
Roots & Vines is put on by the Downtown Association of Yakima (DAY) and its volunteers along with a variety of partners. The event serves as a fundraiser for DAY and downtown revitalization efforts.
Supporting Roots & Vines is a great way to improve the community and enhance your brand. For sponsorship information, contact DAY at email@example.com.
