Bands at Blandford | The Bootstrap Boys
Our annual outdoor concert series is back again and this year we are bringing it to our main campus for LIVE music surrounded by nature!
Tickets must be purchased prior to the show. No tickets will be available at the show.
What are we doing to keep our attendees safe at this years concert series?
This year’s concert series will have a limited capacity of pre-sale only tickets per show. We are creating 12′ diameter social circles for seating. The maximum group size is 6 people per circle. If your group is larger than 6 people, plan to arrive early to get neighboring circles. Masks are mandatory anytime you are not within your social circle; no exceptions. We recommend bringing blankets and/or low chairs for your circle (no high chairs, please). While inside your circles, you may remove your masks and enjoy the show!
Attendees may bring your own food, but no outside beverages other than water will be permitted this year.
